Have you (or someone you know) ever been the victim of ID theft or online scams? Have you ever been hacked? Are you feeling more and more insecure online, both personally and for your business? Are you feeling unsure of what you need to do to digitally secure yourself, your loved ones and your business?
Also, are you concerned that too much personal information are being collected by corporations (e.g., Google, Facebook) and advertisers on the Internet? Do you want to protect yourself from being tracked and followed online? Are you worried that your privacy is increasingly under threat and you are not sure what the implications will be years from now?
All these concerns are signs that the dark side of the Internet is catching up upon us. Unfortunately, right from the beginning, computers and the Internet are not designed with security and privacy in mind. As a result, while they bring in untold convenience and productivity gains that you can never imagine before, they also make life easier for the hackers, cyber-criminals, scammers, advertisers, stalkers, and even your nosy neighbour. Make no mistake about it—if you are not going to do anything about it, you will eventually become a victim. If you decide today that you are going to take responsibility for your own digital security and privacy, someone else will be the victim instead.
So, this book is written to open your eyes and arm yourself with detailed counter-measures against the frightening world of spies, hackers, scammers, cybercriminals, advertisers and Big Brother.
Don’t be a victim!
Eye Opening!!Natalie Lee (on Apple Books review)
How incredibly valuable this book has been! I have learnt so much about how little I actually know of the digital world and its securities. I always thought I was very careful but turns out you can never be too careful. It has taught me a lot about safeguarding myself and my family from the dangers that lurk in the digital world. Especially with young children, I have always worried about the ever growing use of technologies in their schools and then wanting to use them at home. This book gives you the guidance to ensure you are doing everything you can to protect yourself and your family’s privacy. I will definitely be reviewing and implementing a lot of these strategies. What a great place to start than this book. Easy to read and understand. Very thorough and worthwhile for the novice in the digital world. Look forward to reading more from this author.
