ID Theft, email scams, hacking, cyber extortion, and security risks of all kinds depend on one thing more than any other: that you don’t know they’re coming

The vast majority of bad guys use what you don’t know about computers and the internet to take advantage of you which means the good news is that a little awareness goes a long way.

My goal

It is my mission – my greatest honor – to help guard your privacy, security, and financial peace of mind by condensing more than 15 years of technology security and risk management experience into simple tools and techniques that don’t require a computer degree to understand or use.
