Présentation de l'éditeur
The book will show you very simple and easy to use tips to make your browsing, and use of smartphones and tablets much safer. Many of the examples given include very detailed pictures.
If you're a cybersecurity professional much of the information in this book may be old hat to you, but you may just pick up one new thought which would be well worth the price of the book.
If you’re someone who wants to be totally anonymous on the Internet, there are other books in the Kindle store which may be a better fit for you. I have included topics and tools which show you how to browse without being watched or constantly being bombard by ads. We also show you how to encrypt your communications to keep they safe from prying eyes. These are simply bonuses, not the entire subject matter of this book. Some of these if you were to purchase through the commercial market would cost hundreds of dollars per year.
If however, you are a novice or even a power user, the time you invest in this book will help make you safer in this digital age.
Perhaps you’re an Apple user and under the impression your Mac is impervious to malware. Think again. But not to worry, there are strategies and tools designed just for Mac users and iPhone users.
In the event you weren't aware, big business does not really care about your security. Using wireless for example is like the wild-wild-west, and there's no Wyatt Earp or Bat Masterson to come to the rescue. It's just you, your electronics and the bad guys. One of the reasons for this is cost. Think about it; if the local coffee house had good security on their Wi-Fi, they would either need to invest in expensive firewalls or hire IT staff to help their patrons. That $6.00 vanilla cappuccino would cost substantially more.
From reading this book you will learn about the best free anti-virus software, along with many other software program, all free. This is from our actual real-world experience, not simple speculation or guesswork.
You will learn how to significantly harden your browser, whether that is Chrome or Firefox. Caveat, while there are examples with pictures to help you, there is no such thing as a silver bullet. Engaging in risky behavior regardless of the protection can fail.
Much of the knowledge imparted in this book is actual advice and guidance I and my company provides to clients, only you are paying a fraction of the price. Could you get much of what is in this book for free? Possibly! If you invested a tremendous amount of time, and even then because much of what we have learned was from hands on dealing with issues; the cyber risks faced trying to learn without guidance from a book such as this could cost hundreds of dollars and lost time from other more fun or productive activities.
I am a big on education and believe that the more informed and knowledgeable we become as cyber citizens, the safer we will be.
Regardless of where you live, there is a very good chance that there are places you know not to go to. You weren't born with this knowledge, it was acquired or imparted on you through time, and experience. But when we go online, even though you may be in your nice comfortable house, thinking you’re safe and secure; you have entered a gangland, a war zone, and a place where you (your information actually) will be sold to the highest bidder.
Invest in your cyber security education with this book. I sincerely believe you will be in a much better place once you have put into action the security plan, software, and ideas as described in this eBook.
