Overview

When it comes to protecting your computer and its data, what you don't know can hurt you--which is precisely why TechTV personality Becky Worley and mystery writer Donald Webb have joined forces to produce this info-packed volume that carefully outlines the steps you can take to secure your data, your identity, and your privacy in an age of cyber-crime and near-constant virus scares. In the warm, friendly, reassuring style viewers have come to associate with Becky's "Security Alert" segments on TechTV's TechLive news show, this volume delves into all of the areas where you and your computer may be vulnerable to attack: hacking, identity theft, online purchasing, virus attacks, email and Internet scams, online dating and communities, kids and the Internet, and more. Each chapter begins with a real-life disaster story before providing useful tips on how to avoid a similar fate. Practical advice, email and Internet rules to live by, tips to protect your privacy, and more round out the package.
