Own Your Space–Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online — Digital Book for Teens
Microsoft has released a free (!!! :D) ebook covering a wide range of security topics.The book , which is for teenagers offers a good look at using the internet safely, and it’s perfect for anyone looking for a primer on internet security.
Help teens ‘own their space’ online. Whether you are a parent, caregiver, or educator, you can keep up with the latest computer and online safety issues and help kids learn to avoid them. In partnership with security expert and author, Linda McCarthy, we offer a free downloadable version of her new book, “Own Your Space – Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online.” Written for computer and Internet savvy “tweens” and teens specifically, this book is also a useful resource for the adults they rely on.
I must say that Microsoft has done an admirable job with the book. The text is a comprehensive guide for teenagers (and new computer users) that covers everything from how to spot phishing tactics to setting up your browser to protect against browser-based exploits to dealing with cyber-stalking. It also provides interesting history and real world examples of the harm that can come from security vulnerabilities.
