The reason for this book is to assist in educating you towards ensuring your cyber safety. We live in a very different world than we did 5 or 10 years ago. Today, there are thousands of bad actors (hackers) whose day job is to make money by hacking technology users. Their target may be individuals or companies. They may be part of a group, working alone or paid by their Government. They may send out millions of phishing emails, hoping to trap lots of victims, or they may carry out a very specific, well thought out and planned attack, targeted at a single company or individual. Their reasons may be for financial gain, to cause chaos, for political motives or simply because they can.
The results are generally the same: lost money, disaster, catastrophe and embarrassment. In a nutshell, PAIN. To prevent said pain, the first step is to educate yourself and get an understanding of the real threat that exists, understand how you can protect yourself and implement a game plan. This book will go a long way to helping you achieve this. However, remember that technology and threats are consistently evolving so what you learn today will greatly help you but could be superseded by a brand new threat tomorrow.
