about

I'll bet you think your computer is safe from viruses and hackers. But is it really? Isn't it reasonable to expect your computer to be secure straight out-of-the-box? What does it mean to secure a system anyway? Huge security breaches have been all over the news lately. It sometimes seems that not a day goes by without another massive computer hack being announced. If huge corporations with multi-million dollar computer security budgets can get hacked, what hope is there for the ordinary person? If you are anything like me, you don't have huge amounts of money and time to spare to protect your computer. So how do you keep your system safe?This book is intended to help the average Windows user protect their computer. You can practice safe computing without using your life savings. You don't need to get a university education to understand the concepts, and there is no need to lose your weekends twiddling with your computer system.The data which resides on the computer is often far more valuable than the computer itself. You can always buy another machine, but how difficult would it be to replace your digital photos or the documents you've been writing for years?"This book will prove to be useful and informative to anyone who uses a computer, especially if you don't know much about computer security. It is written in a manner that is understandable and digestible, which is a welcome treat for those of you who have ever been subjected to trying to read through technical books." -- Steve Levinson, Managing Director of OBS Global's security consulting practice.
