About this title

Synopsis:

The book for teens that every parent should read!

 

You have been immersed in the technology since preschool. You download music, Google your homework, and constantly IM your friends. You check your email before dinner, tweak your MySpace page, and bypass that hardcopy diary for your own 31337 space in the blogosphere. While you’re doing that, you also need to protect yourself. This book is about keeping safe—protecting your data, your identity, and yourself without giving up all the great stuff the Net puts at your fingertips.

 

Learn how to 

  • Kill viruses, worms, Trojans, and spyware
  • Give Spam the curb and smash web bugs
  • Understand just how public your “private” blogs are
  • Keep wireless freeloaders off your network
  • Safeguard your parents’ credit card and financial data
  • Understand what tools you need and how to tweak them

 

Linda McCarthy is a Security Architect in the office of the CTO at Symantec. Linda has been in the security field for over a decade, and has broken into systems around the world to show executives how easy it is to break into their networks. Linda has published seven books on computer security, and is the author of IT Security: Risking the Corporation. Linda also received the Woman of Influence Award in 2004 for computer security, a prestigious award given annually to only four women in the world.

 

A portion of the proceeds from this book have been designated by the author for nonprofit work to educate teens about Internet security.
