Stay Safe
  • Marvin Waschke


This chapter covers a wide range of practical topics. Previous chapters have shown that the Internet and computing today is a dangerous place. There are many ways in which a criminal can invade your computer and harm you. The industry has recognized security and cybercrime as a significant danger, but they are also committed to making computing easy and trouble free. However, “easy” and “secure” are often contradictory. The advice here is intended to help you establish your own balance between convenience and safety. Following the advice, you may still be vulnerable, complete safety is impossible, but you can greatly reduce the dangers.
