Imagine Yourself... Having control over the websites your kids are visiting and the chat programs they use.. Never worry about getting your computer hacked, your credit card information stolen, family photos taken from you and your everyday life put at risk.. Having the best online safety systems sat up immediately to protect your business from hackers.. If so, you''ve come to the right place. Most, if not all, of us who use technology are familiar with the concept that we need to protect ourselves online. Cyber security is all about taking meaningful steps to ensure that we do not fall victim to hackers. Many people think that employing adequate cyber security means that they download a free antivirus package every year, which will completely protect them and any data and information on their computers. This antivirus will ensure that no malicious files are never downloaded, that they do not access any websites that could be dangerous, that their identities will never be stolen, and that they are generally perfectly safe online. However, this idea is simply not true. Hackers are growing more pernicious and sophisticated every year. They have access to an entire arsenal of cyber weapons, which are often exchanged on the black market. Some of these weapons are powerful enough to bring down websites run by governments and even break into computer servers run by the United States. The need for adequate cyber security is so great that companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year in order to protect themselves. However, for many, they must learn the hard way before they implement the protections that they need: they do so only after becoming the victims of security breaches. Becoming a victim of a cyber hack can be an incredibly costly, frustrating, and time-consuming process. For companies, the cost can be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. If a corporation is hacked, the personal data of millions of customers can be compromised; the company then may have to reimburse those people for any fraudulent activity that may have occurred due to the hack. The cost in terms of the company''s reputation may be so severe that the company never fully recovers. For individuals, a computer hack can lead to identity theft, which can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent financial activity. For both companies and individuals, hacks can lead to sensitive data and information stored in a computer to become compromised. This book will show you many easy things that you can do in order to protect yourself online. It details many of the online threats that you can face, such as describing what spyware and backdoors are. In addition to describing the threats, it lists different types of software that you can utilize to protect yourself against those threats. As a bonus, it talks about the different kinds of hackers so that you can be aware of what you are up against. It talks about different methods that hackers use to gain access to your computer and what you can do to shield yourself from those methods being successful against you. Many of the cyber security methods discussed in this book are either free or very, very inexpensive. However, they can save you countless dollars and hours. There is no way to 100% guarantee that you will not become the victim of a computer hacker. However, if you take meaningful steps to protect yourself online, such as the ones described in this book, you will make your computer significantly more difficult to hack. Hopefully, any hacker who has tried to target you will see that you are serious about cyber security and will move on to his or her next target. If you want to learn how to best protect yourself online, this book is definitely for you! Using the measures advised in this book will help keep you safe from online threats and hacks.

Is It Safe? PROTECTING YOUR COMPUTER, YOUR BUSINESS, AND YOURSELF ONLINE IDENTITY THEFT. DATA THEFT. INTERNET FRAUD. ONLINE SURVEILLANCE. EMAIL SCAMS. Hacks, attacks, and viruses. The Internet is a dangerous place. In years past, you could protect your computer from malicious activity by installing an antivirus program and activating a firewall utility. Unfortunately, that’s no longer good enough; the Internet has become a much darker place, plagued not only by rogue software but also by dangerous criminals and shadowy government agencies. Is It Safe? addresses the new generation of security threat. It presents information about each type of threat and then discusses ways to minimize and recover from those threats. Is It Safe? differs from other security books by focusing more on the social aspects of online security than purely the technical aspects. Yes, this book still covers topics such as antivirus programs and spam blockers, but it recognizes that today’s online security issues are more behavioral in nature–phishing schemes, email scams, and the like. Are you being scammed? Learn how to spot the newest and most insidious computer security threats–fraudulent retailers, eBay scammers, online con artists, and the like. Is your identity safe? Avoid being one of the nine million Americans each year who have their identities stolen. Today’s real Internet threats aren’t viruses and spam. Today’s real threat are thieves who steal your identity, rack up thousands on your credit card, open businesses under your name, commit crimes, and forever damage your reputation! Is Big Brother watching? Get the scoop on online tracking and surveillance. We examine just who might be tracking your online activities and why. Is your employer watching you? How to tell when you’re being monitored; and how to determine what is acceptable and what isn’t. Michael Miller has written more than 80 nonfiction books over the past two decades.

In nontechnical language and engaging style, 10 Don’ts on Your Digital Devices explains to non-techie users of PCs and handheld devices exactly what to do and what not to do to protect their digital data from security and privacy threats at home, at work, and on the road. These include chronic threats such as malware and phishing attacks and emerging threats that exploit cloud‐based storage and mobile apps. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to use any of your cloud-synced assortment of desktop, portable, mobile, and wearable computing devices to work from home, shop at work, pay in a store, do your banking from a coffee shop, submit your tax returns from the airport, or post your selfies from the Oscars. But with this new world of connectivity and convenience comes a host of new perils for the lazy, the greedy, the unwary, and the ignorant. The 10 Don’ts can’t do much for the lazy and the greedy, but they can save the unwary and the ignorant a world of trouble. 10 Don’ts employs personal anecdotes and major news stories to illustrate what can—and all too often does—happen when users are careless with their devices and data. Each chapter describes a common type of blunder (one of the 10 Don’ts), reveals how it opens a particular port of entry to predatory incursions and privacy invasions, and details all the unpleasant consequences that may come from doing a Don’t. The chapter then shows you how to diagnose and fix the resulting problems, how to undo or mitigate their costs, and how to protect against repetitions with specific software defenses and behavioral changes. Through ten vignettes told in accessible language and illustrated with helpful screenshots, 10 Don’ts teaches non-technical readers ten key lessons for protecting your digital security and privacy with the same care you reflexively give to your physical security and privacy, so that you don’t get phished, give up your password, get lost in the cloud, look for a free lunch, do secure things from insecure places, let the snoops in, be careless when going mobile, use dinosaurs, or forget the physical—in short, so that you don’t trust anyone over…anything. Non-techie readers are not unsophisticated readers. They spend much of their waking lives on their devices and are bombarded with and alarmed by news stories of unimaginably huge data breaches, unimaginably sophisticated "advanced persistent threat" activities by criminal organizations and hostile nation-states, and unimaginably intrusive clandestine mass electronic surveillance and data mining sweeps by corporations, data brokers, and the various intelligence and law enforcement arms of our own governments. The authors lift the veil on these shadowy realms, show how the little guy is affected, and what individuals can do to shield themselves from big predators and snoops.
