This book provides practical advice for everyone on how to effectively secure yourself, your devices, and your privacy in an era where all of those things seem doomed. From acquiring software, to the ongoing flaws in email, to the risks of file sharing, and issues surrounding social media and social reputation, Practical Insecurity is the tool you need to maximize your self-protection in the digital world.
Everyone has had a brush with cybersecurity-in some way. Our computer has gotten a virus, somebody you know has lost all their company's data because of ransomware, someone has stolen our identity, a store we do business with has their computer system compromised-including our account-so we are offered free identity protection, and so on. It seems like everyday there is another bit of bad news and it often impacts us. But, the question largely goes unanswered: what can I do as an individual or as the owner of a small business to protect myself against having my security compromised? Practical Insecurity provides the answers.
