Synopses & Reviews
We are fast approaching a time when all our private communications will be monitored as a matter of course - just in case we might have some criminal intent, politically incorrect thought or uncommon belief. The files we store on our home or work computers and the messages we send over the Internet are fair game for those who would snoop into and record our private lives. The only way most of us can reclaim a modicum of privacy is through file encryption and security programs designed to keep prying eyes away from our secrets. Fortunately, there are many programs that are not only incredibly effective in guarding our privacy but are available absolutely free of charge. In this book, Michael Chesbro (The Complete Guide to E-Security, Privacy for Sale) outlines some of the most popular freeware encryption and security programs available. You will learn how to determine which programs are best for you, how to securely destroy files and the advantages of file sharing. The cost of using these programs is zero. But if you don't learn to use them, it could cost you your privacy or even your freedom.
