The ultimate step by step guide to securing your personal computer in a world of hacking, malware and identity theft.
You come home one day and sit down to check your email. But a message pops up on your computer telling you that all your files have been encrypted. To recover your files, all you need to do is send $300 worth of Bitcoin by clicking on a button and typing in your credit card. And now there’s a countdown before your files will be erased.
This scenario happens every day to good people. Many think that hackers only target big companies and the wealthy. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The big money is made by targeting people like you. Why? Because it’s easier to target the novice and intermediate computer user than the high tech corporations. And, you don’t have the resources to fight back. It’s easier to just pay.
In this course, you'll learn how to make simple free and low cost changes to your personal computer to protect yourself from the hackers and identity thieves who want to take away everything you've worked your whole life for. I'll walk you through a step by step process to secure your computer and give you the information you need to understand how these hackers make people like you victims.
Don't be a victim!
You'll watch me do every step along the way and see simple to understand instructions to follow to do it yourself. No special skill, other than a desire to not be a victim, are required.
This course is geared towards people with Windows 10 computers, but a majority of the same concepts and software also apply to other operating systems.
