Business Insider — The first rule of freelance work is to be safe.
A recent survey found that 70% of the 1,200 freelancers surveyed were victims of online fraud.
They also found that nearly half of them felt that they had experienced some form of online harassment.
“A lot of times, the people who are the most targeted are the people most vulnerable to being hurt by these kinds of threats,” said Sarah Dutson, a senior vice president at law firm Dutsey & Tufts.
“The people that have the most to lose are the ones that can’t take it.
People who are vulnerable to having their livelihood taken away are the least able to respond.”
In the survey, freelancers were asked questions about what kind of abuse they had received online, whether they had been the target of a physical attack or cyber-attack, and whether they were afraid to come forward.
Many of the responses were negative, as many were wary of speaking up about the issue.
“There’s a lot of fear that it will bring down the industry,” Dutsson said.
“And it’s really hard to get the word out about this.
So a lot is going to be lost.”
A freelancer is a person who works for a company.
They typically receive a commission for their work and some income from other sources, such as advertising and sponsorship.
But they also get to share their time with their clients, or even collaborate on projects.
According to Duttson, it’s important for freelancers to be aware of what they’re posting on the web, and be vigilant about what they post online.
“What’s important to know is that this is not something that you can just be careless about, and it’s not something you can ignore,” she said.
The best way to protect yourself, said Dutzons research, is to do two things.
The first is to avoid posting anything that looks like it’s stolen.
“We think that a lot that is posted online is really not stolen,” she added.
“It’s just very well crafted to look like something that’s stolen and not stolen.”
The second is to make sure that the posts you post aren’t in bad taste or inappropriate.
This could be a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook post or even an Instagram post.
“Make sure that you don’t post things that you would consider inappropriate or inappropriate for someone to do,” Dutsons advice said.
Dutsons advice comes in the wake of the recent attack on a professional photographer who posted a photo of her wearing a hijab and a headscarf on her Instagram account.
A video of the attack was widely shared online and sparked an outcry against the use of Islam in public life.
While the photo was not actually stolen, Dut’s advice is to never post anything that is offensive to anyone or any religion.
“If you’re posting something that is not offensive, it can still be used as an attack,” she told Business Insider.
“So make sure you’re very careful and be very careful to not offend anybody.”
While the vast majority of freelancers agree that it’s hard to be confident that a person’s content is safe, Dutson said it’s critical that freelancers take the time to ensure that their posts are safe.
“I think it’s very important for all freelancers that they make sure they’re doing a good job, that they’re communicating very clearly, and that they have the tools that they need to make their posts secure,” she noted.
“You can’t really say, ‘Oh, I’ve been a victim of this, I’m going to post something here.’
You have to make that clear.”
