You need an anti-doxing strategy

If you’re active in any social media or otherwise have an opportunity to express an opinion online (sadly, particularly if you’re female), you’ll need an anti-doxing strategy.

If you’re not familiar with the term “doxing”, it refers to harassment in the real world as a result of information that can be gleaned about you online. It can range from anything from being signed up for mailing lists or printed magazine subscriptions to annoying telemarketer calls to even having the local SWAT team called to your house (this is called “Swatting”). It can range from annoying to potentially life-threatening, so it’s something to take seriously and plan for accordingly.
