Robert’s Siciliano’s latest book Identity Theft Privacy: Security Protection and Fraud Prevention. Businesses and individuals are each responsible for online privacy, fraud prevention, cyber security, and identity theft. Learn all about identity theft privacy in one book.
The Internet is an essential tool in our lives because we conduct most of our business online. We use the Internet to shop, pay bills, and manage bank accounts.
I once believed that I had taken all the necessary precautions to protect my small business. I shared the misconception that a criminal would never target me. But as I learned, and as most individuals will soon learn, identity theft and financial loss due to criminal activity happen more often than we realize.
In just the past decade, tens of billions of data records have been compromised due to data breaches. That is, everyone on Earth, or at least in the developed world, have had their identities compromised multiple times. Criminals most certainly have your personal information already.
This means that you could be taking all the necessary precautions to keep your information safe, but by simply doing what every other person in the world does—sharing your sensitive Personal Identifying Information (PII) or credit card information with a trusted organization—you have put yourself and your security at risk. So, how do you protect yourself?
Having been entrenched in the field of personal security for the past 30 years, I have kept up with the latest technological advances and shared my expertise. I am often called upon to comment in all areas of media including the Internet, television, newspapers, and magazines. Throughout these pages, I offer the skills and knowledge you and your business need in order to protect yourself from criminals. There always have been, and always will be, criminals seeking their next victim. Your ob is to put up defenses so they don’t choose you. This book will help you to put systems into place, reduce risk, make the data the bad guys already have useless to them, and thwart a criminal from determining you are the next target.
