In this Internet age, technology gurus have loudly warned us of the dangers of identity theft. But computer security expert Daniel Lohrmann is more troubled about a different threat lurking online--integrity theft. In Virtual Integrity, he reveals the vast scope of the potential pitfalls we face every time we surf the Web--the temptations vying for our thoughts, dreams, time, and money.
In this groundbreaking book, Lohrmann launches the battle against integrity theft by setting out to answer this question: How can we safely surf our values? Lohrmann tackles topics including problems with Web filters and parental controls, the pervasiveness of cheating on the Web, and how to avoid online career pitfalls. He then offers practical tips for following his "seven habits of online integrity" and unpacks a revolutionary new paradigm for integrity security.
"The Internet has brought the world to our fingertips; unfortunately, it can also take our eyes, our minds--and ultimately our character--places we should never go. While much has been written about the need to protect our identity in this brave new cyber world, little has been said about how to achieve this. Dan Lohrmann shows the way in Virtual Integrity."--Tony Perkins, president, Family Research Council
"This book is a great education tool that takes a unique look at the personal responsibility required of all of us as we utilize the power of the Internet. The book provides perspective, not just about security, but also about our role in the new world of using the Web as a tool for communicating, collaborating, creating, and utilizing information. Dan Lohrmann provides practical steps to address the concerns of parents, educators, government officials, and community leaders."--Teri Takai, chief information officer, State of California
