In the News: Dominican Professor Featured in News Report on Social Media Cybersecurity Risks
Dr. Hassan Zamir, associate professor with the School of Information Studies at Dominican University, contributed to a recent news report about protecting against identity fraud.
The report, which aired on ABC affiliates including Denver 7 and WXYZ in Detroit, looks at why parents posting too much about their children online can put them at risk for identity theft — even if they believe the posts are only being seen by friends.
"The cybercriminals don't have to be a direct friend with you on social media," Zamir said in the report. "They can be just a friend of a friend of a friend in your network."

Zamir is a contributor to the book Cybersecurity for Information Professionals from Auerbach Publications. The chapter he authored is entitled “Cybersecurity and Social Media.”
