Introducing: 99 Things You Wish You Knew Before Your Identity Was Stolen

Yes, it’s a glorious day with the birth of my new book. I’ve spent 15 years in the trenches, reporting on all issues of personal security. Now I’ve taken what I know about protecting your identity and avoiding fraud and packed it all into 99 tips, a quick read of less than 35,000 words. Now you can also become an expert on how to protect yourself from these horrible crimes.

But I didn’t do it by myself. McAfee, the largest and most trusted name in digital security, helped me. Their teams of threat experts are constantly fighting off the bad guys, and I drew upon their vast experience and research.

In 99 Things You Wish You Knew Before Your Identity Was Stolen, I proactively demystify identity theft and computer fraud by presenting the relevant information surrounding these issues in the form of simple, bite-sized chunks, In order to make consumers, families, employees, and small businesses safer and more secure. Readers will learn the difference between scareware, ransomware and spyware. They’ll learn about the types of cybercriminals, such as black hats, crackers, script kiddies, and hacktivists. And most importantly, readers will learn how to protect their identities, both online and in the physical world.

As millions of consumers begin searching and shopping online during the holiday season, McAfee understands the necessity of spreading awareness of cybercriminals’ tactics and methods for protecting oneself from identity theft and online fraud.
