Written specially for the non-technical home and small-office computer user, this comprehensive guide provides digital commonsense . By developing an understanding of the potential dangers in internet engagement, the reader will easily learn how to counter the risks to their bank balance, their children, their privacy, and their data. Whilst recognising that readers will have limited time and money to spend on computer security, the author takes many of the principles used in the professional field of information security and applies them to the home computing domain. The book has relevance for all devices, independent of operating system. Topics include: confident online shopping and banking; secure e-mail; backing up data; choosing good passwords; cookies and other privacy threats; curing viruses; working securely at home.
