Protecting yourself online: A short beginners guide

I wrote this guide to teach a casual internet user how to defend themselves from the more common threats.
This was also a good way to practice explaining technical concepts in a way most people can understand.

I cover

  1. Creating and storing good passwords
  2. Securing communications over the internet
  3. Protecting your privacy on the internet
  4. Intelligent use of the internet to avoid common threats (phishing, malicious files)

The full guide is on my blog:
