Protecting your computer is like defending a medieval castle. While moats, walls, drawbridges, and castle guards can be effective, you’d go broke trying to build something dragon-proof. This book is not about protecting yourself from a targeted attack by the NSA; it’s about armoring yourself against common hackers and mass surveillance. There are dozens of no-brainer things we all should be doing to protect our computers and safeguard our data – just like wearing a seat belt, installing smoke alarms, and putting on sunscreen.
