"The walls have ears"

Updated: May 5

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, we don't choose a specific place to talk with our friends or colleagues. In a restaurant, a public café, inside an Uber, in the elevator, or any other place, we discuss various topics, but we need to be cautious when the subject is business.

Perhaps we don't realize it, but the person at the next table might work for one of your competitors or be someone with malicious intentions. As you were speaking loudly, this person inadvertently heard everything you said about the security flaws in your company, the dissatisfaction of some employees, or the new product that will be launched in a few weeks.

All business information about your company or your clients should never become public. Personally, ever since I entered the field of security, I've been mindful to prevent this from happening, and I recommend you do the same. After all:

And that's why the saying 'the walls have ears' fits so well.
