This book can help anyone take charge of their cybersecurity and privacy, and provides a solid understanding of cybercrime, privacy threats, information security, and technology. It teaches the reader about computers and networks, and then guides the user through implementation of security and privacy measures to protect the individual, home, and family. Then these principles are applied to the workplace, and an overview is provided of the law and professional responsibility requirements.
Readers of any technical skill level can take charge of their own cybersecurity and privacy in a methodical manner. Information security can seem overwhelming, but this book presents it in simple steps—first secure your computing devices, then your data, then your networks. These are three pillars of security, the fourth is you and your knowledge.
This book is for anyone, and draws upon my experience, training, research, and study. It also had the benefit of talented editors and readers.
Technology and the internet is here to stay, along with cybercrime and other privacy threats. Each of us needs to take charge of our own technology, cybersecurity, and privacy. If you haven't started yet, you have to start somewhere, and everyone and every organization has room for improvement. This book can help you with that.
I have a separate website devoted to this book which includes additional resources, photos, forms, acknowledgment of those who helped, and more, at https://cybersecurityhomeandoffice.com/.
