Security and Privacy Online and In Life (SPOIL)
There is a need for more information that helps ordinary people understand how to protect themselves from scams and fraud. Many scams are perpetuated through the technology that we use everyday — our telephones, our computers, etc. Attacks are happening constantly, and you need to know how to recognize them and avoid being taken.
I will classify my thoughts and hints about computer security and personal privacy in a broad category that I will call SPOIL : Security and Privacy Online and In Life. The term is my own … it probably won’t catch on. SPOIL awareness is something that every person should have. Even if you are computer illiterate, or try to live your life technology-free, you need to be aware of the ways that people are trying to steal your identity and your assets.
