    On this site we regularly have requests off individuals to delete their account due to the sensitive nature of their role.

    People undertaking or hoping to undertake Specialist Qualifications which require Developed Vetting (DV) often find they have been less than discreet on Social Media and have an enormous task "sanitising" their digital footprint. To save yourself the hassle follow the guidelines below.

    At present, with the introduction of Females in GCC roles this coming year, the advice is to be particularly careful what you declare in your real name on social media, three reasons, the first two deadly serious:

    1. The media/press are looking for stories on the subject
    2. There are terrorist organisations seeking newsworthy targets
    3. If you keep it to yourself, you'll make a fortune when you write that book!

    Guidelines below
