Overview
Christopher Burgess brings his voice to Senior Online Safety with a practical guide for safety and security, both online and off. Regardless of age, you will find value in the content, as device configuration, practicing good cyber hygiene or being security aware has no age boundaries. And while this is an online safety guide, included are descriptions and analyses of various criminal scams and techniques which are being used to prey upon all of us, both online and off; these range from the infamous “one-ring scam” to “identity theft.” In two sections, the discussion on passwords and on anti-virus software, I make specific recommendations and/or draw from industry reviews which identify “best-of-class” products. Prevendra (the publisher) reached out and established direct relationships so as to avail these to you directly from the pages of this e-book.
