Internet Users Also Responsible For Online Security

While the hysteria over the Heartbleed bug seems to be winding down, many of us are left scratching our heads wondering how or even if we can protect our personal information online. 

David Shipley of UNB's I-T services says users should be taking online security into their own hands by educating themselves. 

He tells CHSJ News there's a lot of information available to consumers about the security and privacy policies of the companies they're doing business with but many users just brush over terms and contract agreements and don't pay attention to the details.

He says some of those contracts can be pretty scary, giving companies permission to do a lot with your personal information.
