From this Johnny come lately.
Everyone has been on it and how.
Packers have -- -- weird -- in the cyber threat to social media how vulnerable are we joining me now from Washington got white -- Group's CEO and former navy seal John I -- -- EC.
It's not every day that I interview a guy who can kill -- bare hands thank you for joining us John so first question.
Who is more -- prepared against Packers business networks generally or the social media networks.
I would say the social media networks in general.
I think have a very good amount of security.
But it's not their security that I get concerned about it's the actually -- sitting behind that desk.
-- -- Laptop for the holiday I -- -- and is actually participating in social media beginning rendered in shell and all these different.
Gains in and in ads and things like that and all it takes is one click on one of those and and a lot of trouble can happen as a result of that.
Are you saying that the social media networks bigger threat is that it provides a Trojan horse doorway into my employer's network and that's how they can -- -- or you saying that I'm at risk when I get on my FaceBook page and they get into my face but they -- If I'm opposed to all kinds of personal details about my life for all to see what is the threat of a -- once that happened in my FaceBook page.
Exactly I mean we're dealing with 13 of the -- surfers owning -- FaceBook account.
-- all of that over 25%.
Don't even control the privacy settings.
That's a problem in itself and when you look at the numbers.
And you and you ask yourself -- accessing this from their home from their work place.
These sheer volume of potential vulnerabilities increases by an order of magnitude.
Have we seen any legal liability cases decisions made.
Where if I'm on FaceBook and my employer and my -- gets -- because it they came into my FaceBook account that FaceBook is liable.
Yeah I have not seen any that's a great question -- furthermore I'm glad to see that.

So that locked and -- force -- in the average citizen can understand what their role is to help protect us yet.
But kind of surprised that mean if he came from another planet.
He saw all the computer gear that companies spend billions of dollars in.
But it wasn't shipped with protection intact instead we have a whole separate industry of security add -- -- we get here.
-- I don't know I mean to -- FaceBook and social media sites is like sitting around a digital campfire.
And the same rules you have don't talk to -- is should it occur on line.
It's not surprising that 90%.
Or on site contents it has sexual tone and FaceBook gets broadcast 90% more.
To their friends and family.
In that -- is a good example of how people can click on friends on FaceBook thinking again.
Be friends of them or read an article and in fact -- be open to a Trojan horse.
Don't talk to strangers on FaceBook -- -- thought the whole purpose of FaceBook will have to go -- for women to meat that's why Zuckerberg invented it.
Well we seem to have this kind of what -- called Bermuda trying to -- government.
Industry and then the tech industry was whether corporate and no one agrees on who should pay for all this extra protection.
If congress gonna get in -- -- this up.
-- -- I hope that they -- leaders in DC and in congress and and elsewhere.
Come together -- like your question the last segment which was we need to do something right now and I'm saying this is like the wild wild west to -- -- digital tombstone.
So if you're a resident of -- down.
Right now this is on you to protect until the federal government can get something in place and -- we -- a guy like having a gun fight thanks for being -- -- -- I thank you I had -- -- and at that -- and look at their.
