Cyber Security Awareness Tip #28: Cookies

It's tuesday morning, and your morning briefing is for a group of new employees.  You have a bunch of network and security topics to cover in a short time, and the audience is generally non-technical.
What do you tell them about cookies?  What risks are there, and what risks have been blown out of proportion?  What straightforward practical steps can they take to minimize privacy issues?  Have you done some behind-the-scenes work for them in setting up their applications to similarly protect their privacy?

I'll update the diary with your tips; please submit them at .
