Cybercrime is a massive 21st century problem and small businesses face a huge hurdle to effectively protect themselves and their customers, compared to larger firms. Budgets are tight and not fully understanding the risks means that gaps can easily be left. This practical guide acts like a pocket cyber security consultant, helping you build a layered cyber security strategy using a mixture of free and paid for services. Just because you are a small business, it doesn’t mean you need to be a victim of cybercrime.

Internet Security Fundamentals

Level: Beginner to Intermediate - eBook (updated monthly)

Author: nick ioannou

Antivirus software is now incredibly advanced, yet 80,000 people a day fall for email phishing scams.* Many viruses are designed to trick you into installing them, the same way that a sophisticated alarm system and door security is not much use if you open the door to let a criminal in.


This illustrated 174 page eBook explains why you cannot just rely on just antivirus, due to the various scams and tricks used by cyber criminals. It is an easy to understand guide of the most commonly faced security threats any user is likely to come across via email, social media and online shopping. Because now, one wrong click can cost you a lot of money and inconvenience. Also includes free monthly updates with new content as the threats evolve. Internet Security Fundamentals is aimed at everyday users, it is not aimed at people studying cyber security or CISSP, though there will probably be things you didn't know covered.
