Learn how to protect yourself!
on February 6, 2012
As a technological "layman" I found this to be a great book for everyone who wonders about privacy and security on the Internet - even if you don't quite grasp everything that's going on out there. Personally, I cannot bring myself to disconnect from online professional and social networks, and don't want to deny myself the convenience of online shopping/banking. So how do you protect yourself while still enjoying these modern benefits? The author discusses the threats that exist in all these kinds of activities (and more) and prescribes practical ways of safeguarding yourself from the big bad wolves. The tone is down to earth and you don't have to be a techie to understand the concepts. Fantastic gift for all generations but particularly the "invincible" 15-30 years olds (like myself) who are unaware of the perils (or at least passive about them). Be suspicious and prepared!!
