Antivirus Is Not Enough - 'Awareness Education Is Critical'*
Internet Security Fundamentals
Practical Steps To Increase Your Online Security
Level: Beginner to Intermediate - Ebook (updated monthly)
An easy to understand guide of the most commonly faced security threats any computer user is likely to come across via email, social media and online shopping. Updated monthly with new content for free. Please note this is not aimed at people studying internet security or CISSP.
Antivirus software is now incredibly advanced, yet 80,000 people a day fall for email phishing scams** and with 12 million new malware variants per month, the problem of viruses is worse than ever! Many viruses are designed to trick you into installing them, the same way that a sophisticated alarm system and door security is not much use if you open the door to let a criminal in. This book explains why you cannot just rely on just antivirus, but also need to be aware of the various phishing techniques, scams and tricks used by criminals.
Today, it's all about money, taking your money that is, from your bank account, your credit cards or selling your details to other criminals. They are the digital version of the mugger in the street, the organised crime syndicate, burglars and thieves. A little bit of background knowledge of how to avoid the dangers though, will lower your chances of becoming a victim.
