I really enjoyed reading this book. It gives a interesting explanation of the cyber security world. I would recommend it to other computer enthusiasts as a must read.

Wilddonkey is my handle, but I am really Marvin Waschke, author of Personal Cybersecurity.

I wrote this book because when people hear that I am a software engineer and architect, they first thing they ask about is security-- how can they avoid identity theft, having their credit or debit card stolen, or getting slammed with ransomware. I find myself repeating the same set of advice. Since I am an efficient person, I decided to put it all in a book and save myself some work.

In the book, I explain exactly what there is out there to be afraid of. If you know what to fear, you are already better prepared to avoid danger. I also talk about what the computing industry has done to combat cybercrime and how local, state, and national government will help you. Finally, I explain what you can do to drastically reduce the likelihood that you will be victimized and what you can do to minimize the hurt if you are a victim. The steps aren't hard, but if you don't know, you are not likely to take them.
