Publisher Comments:

Essential Computer Security provides the vast home user and small office computer market with the information they must know in order to understand the risks of computing on the Internet and what they can do to protect themselves.

Tony Bradley is the Guide for the About.com site for Internet Network Security. In his role managing the content for a site that has over 600,000 page views per month and a weekly newsletter with 25,000 subscribers, Tony has learned how to talk to people, everyday people, about computer security. Intended for the security illiterate, Essential Computer Security is a source of jargon-less advice everyone needs to operate their computer securely.

* Written in easy to understand non-technical language that novices can comprehend

* Provides detailed coverage of the essential security subjects that everyone needs to know

* Covers just enough information to educate without being overwhelming

Synopsis:

Do you want your computer to be absolutely, positively, 100% secure against all vulnerabilities and exploits both known now and those yet to be discovered? That is simple--leave your computer in the box it came in. The only way to be 100% secure is never to turn the computer on. Once you turn the computer on, you begin a tight-rope-balancing act between functionality/convenience and security.

This book discusses all the security hot spots: email, viruses, wireless access, passwords, patches, networks and then the reader is shown how security is a process, not a single action or product. The book then discusses the things that must be done to maintain a secure system.

Synopsis:

Essential Security Advice from Tony Bradley, About.com's Guide for Internet/Network Security

"Security is a process, not a product, and computer security is everyone's responsibility. You wouldn't leave the backdoor of your home or business open to intruders, and your computer merits the same prudence. Even Dodge City had a Wyatt Earp to keep order if things got out of hand. In the wild world of the Internet, there is no sheriff. With Essential Computer Security you can act as your own deputy by arming yourself with fundamental knowledge of the important aspects of computer security."-Douglas Schweitzer, Sc.D., security expert and author of "Securing the Network from Malicious Code"

Coverage includes:

Basic Windows Security Passwords Viruses, Worms, and Other Malware Patching Perimeter Security E-mail Safety Web Surfing Privacy and Safety Wireless Network Security Spyware and Adware Glossary of Technology and Terminology
