@Presidents, Prime Ministers, Government Ministers/Secretaires Generals, Les Forces Armies, Bankers, PDGs, etc.;

1   Never take a smartphone into a confidential meeting. Even when you power off a smartphone, it’s microphone and camera can still be remotely enabled to record everything around it

@Presidents, Prime Ministers, Government Ministers/Secretaires Generals, Les Forces Armies, Bankers, PDGs and Students with political aspirations; 

2   Never use generic email providers like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo etc. to communicate. Only use your official email for work-related correspondence and for non-work communication, use a secure email provider like http://www.protonmail.com which encrypts your emails.

3   Never have a confidential meeting in or around any VoIP Desktop Phone (e.g. Cisco, Avaya, Polycom, Mitel etc.). Their microphones can be remotely turned-on and your conversation listened to without the device green LED coming on.

@Everybody; 

4   Never open an attachment or click on embedded links in emails or text messages from unknown sources. All such emails should be deleted without opening. When in doubt, mouse-over the name of the email sender and see if the displayed address matches the domain they claim to represent. A better confirmation check is to right-click on a suspected email and click on ‘show original’ to reveal the Internet Protocol header which contains the sender’s factual domain and see if it matches the claimed domain. (Note; on Gmail and Hotmail, you have to first click on the email—>click ‘More or More Actions’—>’Show Original’)

@Everybody; 

5   Everything you share on social media (e.g. Snapchat, Dropbox, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter etc.,) even when deleted afterwards, are all recorded. Put differently, everything you delete online is in fact not deleted. So, always assume that everything you post online will one day be leaked.
