Summary

The rise of new technologies in our lives, which has taken us from powerful mobile phones to fitness trackers and smart appliances in under a decade, has also raised the need for everyone who uses these to protect themselves from cyber scams and hackers. Every new device and online service you use that improves your life also opens new doors for attackers looking to discover your passwords, banking accounts, personal photos, and anything else you want to keep secret.  

In Cyber Smart, author Bart McDonough uses his extensive cybersecurity experience speaking at conferences for the FBI, major financial institutions, and other clients to answer the most common question he hears: "How can I protect myself at home, on a personal level, away from the office?" McDonough knows cybersecurity and online privacy are daunting to the average person, so Cyber Smart simplifies online good hygiene with five simple "Brilliance in the Basics" habits anyone can learn. With those habits and his careful debunking of common cybersecurity myths you'll be able to protect yourself and your family from:

  • Identify theft
  • Compromising your children
  • Lost money
  • Lost access to email and social media accounts

A great (audio) book to bolster your knowledge

I thought I knew a few key things about cybersecurity. I didn't really know enough! This book is compelling and easy to listen to. It gives you well explained insights along with practical steps to deal with the risks. I am going to listen to it again soon and recommend to others they get hold of it too!
