about this item
The Basics of Cyber Safety: Computer and Mobile Device Safety Made Easy presents modern tactics on how to secure computer and mobile devices, including what behaviors are "safe" while surfing, searching, and interacting with others in the virtual world.
The book's author, Professor John Sammons, who teaches information security at Marshall University, introduces readers to the basic concepts of protecting their computer, mobile devices, and data during a time that is described as the most "connected" in history.
This timely resource provides useful information for readers who know very little about the basic principles of keeping the devices they are connected to—or themselves—secure while online.
In addition, the text discusses, in a non-technical way, the cost of connectedness to your privacy, and what you can do to protect your privacy, including how to avoid all kinds of viruses, malware, cybercrime, and identity theft.
Final sections provide the latest information on safe computing in the workplace and at school, and give parents steps they can take to keep young kids and teens safe online.
