A Call to Action!
This post is as much for myself as it is for anyone reading. I have neglected this site long enough. Life gets in the way However, this topic of security for the home has not left my mind. I think I felt somewhat self-conscious about my soap box. I don’t want people to feel guilty. I don’t want to add stress to their life. I understand the complexities of EVERY gadget that you might have. I also know it can be REALLY confusing to figure out how to make it secure.
However, I continue to see news articles of information being leaked or stolen. I continue to see increasing trends of addiction to pornography, on-line gambling, etc. I can’t be self conscious of this message. We can’t just sit back and TRUST that nothing will happen.
The Intenet is still in its infancy. It is only about 15 years since the dot com bubble. We thought the Internet was going to take over everything. It hasn’t … yet. We are slowly seeing how the Internet has an ever increasing affect on the way we live ..how we communicate, how we are entertained, shop, get informed, etc. The Internet is a way of life and it is silly to think that you or your family can live without it. To think we can shut it down now is SILLY. All we can do is teach our kids, put in the right security controls to protect them, and talk through any hiccups along the way.
My goal is to empower the average home computer user to make the necessary changes to their home computer, gadget, network, to keep their information and family safe from the wiles of the Internet.
So there it is, take it or leave it.
My call to action to you is to figure out what you want to know … what do you need to figure out?
My call to action for myself it to post a topic once a week. First on deck … how to secure an iTouch for a teenager.
