Scams, Security and Over-Sharing: Controlling Your Information and Staying Safe Online (Paperback)
This book isn't about cybersecurity, it's about life. Specifically, connected life in the 21st century. It's about the behaviours we need to change and the threats we need to be aware of to ensure that we can keep ourselves and our families as safe as possible in the new connected world. We are the pioneers in connectivity and this world is evolving in a way that none of us has ever seen before. This book will cover elements of 21st century life which will be familiar to all consumers - from social media, to email hacking, to content theft, to connected devices and even connected cars.
