Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Imagine Yourself... Having control over the websites your kids are visiting and the chat programs they use.. Never worry about getting your computer hacked, your credit card information stolen, family photos taken from you and your everyday life put at risk.. Having the best online safety systems sat up immediately to protect your business from hackers.. If so, you''ve come to the right place. Most, if not all, of us who use technology are familiar with the concept that we need to protect ourselves online. Cyber security is all about taking meaningful steps to ensure that we do not fall victim to hackers. Many people think that employing adequate cyber security means that they download a free antivirus package every year, which will completely protect them and any data and information on their computers. This antivirus will ensure that no malicious files are never downloaded, that they do not access any websites that could be dangerous, that their identities will never be stolen, and that they are generally perfectly safe online. However, this idea is simply not true. Hackers are growing more pernicious and sophisticated every year. They have access to an entire arsenal of cyber weapons, which are often exchanged on the black market. Some of these weapons are powerful enough to bring down websites run by governments and even break into computer servers run by the United States. The need for adequate cyber security is so great that companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year in order to protect themselves. However, for many, they must learn the hard way before they implement the protections that they need: they do so only after becoming the victims of security breaches. Becoming a victim of a cyber hack can be an incredibly costly, frustrating, and time-consuming process. For companies, the cost can be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. If a corporation is hacked, the personal data of millions of customers can be compromised; the company then may have to reimburse those people for any fraudulent activity that may have occurred due to the hack. The cost in terms of the company''s reputation may be so severe that the company never fully recovers. For individuals, a computer hack can lead to identity theft, which can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent financial activity. For both companies and individuals, hacks can lead to sensitive data and information stored in a computer to become compromised. This book will show you many easy things that you can do in order to protect yourself online. It details many of the online threats that you can face, such as describing what spyware and backdoors are. In addition to describing the threats, it lists different types of software that you can utilize to protect yourself against those threats. As a bonus, it talks about the different kinds of hackers so that you can be aware of what you are up against. It talks about different methods that hackers use to gain access to your computer and what you can do to shield yourself from those methods being successful against you. Many of the cyber security methods discussed in this book are either free or very, very inexpensive. However, they can save you countless dollars and hours. There is no way to 100% guarantee that you will not become the victim of a computer hacker. However, if you take meaningful steps to protect yourself online, such as the ones described in this book, you will make your computer significantly more difficult to hack. Hopefully, any hacker who has tried to target you will see that you are serious about cyber security and will move on to his or her next target. If you want to learn how to best protect yourself online, this book is definitely for you! Using the measures advised in this book will help keep you safe from online threats and hacks.

Cyber security is often thought to be the domain of specialist IT professionals, however cyber risks are found across and within organisations.

The reality is that the threat from cyber risks is constantly growing, meaning non-technical managers need to understand and manage these threats as best they can. As well as offering practical advice, the author guides readers through the processes that will enable them to manage and mitigate such threats thereby offering the best protection for their organisations.
