Raising user awareness about privacy issues
by Zeljka Zorz - Tuesday, 14 August 2012.
In this age of social networks, discovering personal information about users has become increasingly easy to do, and that information can be misused at a later date for stealing their identities or leveraged to make them trust attackers.

In this Help Net Security podcast Catalin Cosoi, Chief Security Researcher for Bitdefender, talks about the company's efforts for making users aware of the privacy issues on the Internet, and warns about the fact that even if you're avoiding using social media, there might be information about you on the Internet that you would prefer not to be available to everyone.



Catalin Cosoi has been with Bitdefender for almost 8 year now, jumping from research and development of new AntiSpam Technologies to AntiPhishing and several other online threats. He is now managing the Online Threats Lab and serves as the company's technical spokesperson.

His interest include (but are not limited to) antispam filters and technologies, pattern recognition and extraction, cryptography, cognitive-emotional interactions, social engineering, language processing techniques and neural networks.

He has a bachelor degree in Cognitive Systems and Bioengineering and he is preparing his PhD thesis on Natural Language Processing Techniques at “Politehnica” University of Bucharest.
