I don't need this book - I already know
about how to secure my computer. Why would I need this book?
First of all Congratulations! I'm thrilled when I meet teens
(and adults) who know how to keep their computer secure and up to
date, and know how to protect themselves from identity theft.
But, before you continue - how about trying our security
quiz? You should find it quite easy...
I believe that those of us who know about computer security
have a responsibility to help those around us. I'm sure you've
already been called on by friends and family members to clean up
viruses or solve computer problems.
So for you I want to extend an invitation - to join me in
spreading word about this book to your friends and
acquaintances. It will give them the knowledge to protect
themselves - and at the very make it easier for them to understand
your instructions when you're helping them with problems that come
One more thought: among the reviewers of this book were a
number of teens who already had a great deal of knowledge about
computer security. Yet every single one of them came back
during the review with comments that they were surprised about how
much they learned. Because, let's face it - as someone who
already knows about computer security, you also know that there's
always something new to learn (which is one reason for this web
site - so I could provide updates - many of which I hope will be
contributed by people like yourself).
