Review of "CYBERSECURITY: Hacking, the Dark Web and You" (TIME)


When I saw this issue on the rack, I was immediately attracted to it being the industry I'm in.  It was almost $17, so I was hesitant because I usually get info like this free online, but felt it was a necessary expense to see what they had to teach me.


Glad I did, so I could tell you it IS WORTH IT, AS AN INDIVIDUAL OR BUSINESS OWNER, TO BUY THIS.  

Even if you just read the review of the last chapter How To Protect Yourself it will be worth it.

Here is the Table of Contents for your reference throughout this post.



9   Hacking, a Glossary


Who doesn't need a glossary of hacking terms?  I learned what black hat vs white hat hackers are, and what the Dark Web really is (Guess what?  It was started by the government...which leads to the next article I'd like to highlight.)


12 The Deep Web


"The story of the Deep Web is a fable of technology and its unintended consequences." - It really is an interesting and detailed article about the development of the Deep Web and what it is used for today. There is even an infographic about Bitcoin and how it works. 


28 The Year of the Hacker 


2016 was hit hard by hackers.  This section lays out some of the major hacks from business, government, infrastructure and even the Podesta email hack from the Hillary Clinton campaign.  It left me with the feeling that hacking could happen to anyone.  What can I do about that?


60 Inside the Hack of the Century


The Sony Pictures hack involving the film The Interview.  Apparently Sony was not very well prepared for any sort of hacking, and the article describes why.  



77-87 How to Protect Yourself


If you get the magazine for nothing else, get it to read and apply this chapter.  There is a page of explanations and tips for each of these categories: 


 • FREE WI-FI • PHISHING • DEVICES & GADGETS • MALWARE • IDENTITY THEFT • ADVERTISING • AT WORK • AT HOME • PASSWORDS • A CHECKLIST


Two systems of software that we are fans of are SUPERAntiSpyware Professional, Kaspersky Total Security (with password manager) and Malwarebytes (which you can also get for your mobile devices).


You can also check out our last blog - CYBERSECURITY: IS YOUR BUSINESS SECURE?  and one that covers phishing scams TIPS TO AVOID EMAIL SCAMS for more information to protect yourself.


I hope you learned a lot from this post!  If you need help implementing any of these tips, let us know.  We would be happy to give you advice on your specific issue or concern and/or set you up with a secure website, email system and network.
