I’ve long admired and followed the work of Windows expert Ed Bott, who writes a regular blog for ZDNet (now a CNET property). His recent posting entitled “Stay safe online: 5 secrets every PC (and Mac) owner should know” is a short, sweet and extremely informative primer on what information security experts often like to call “safe computing practices” or “Internet Security Awareness.”
Ed Bott’s Safe Computing Blog
There’s nothing in this blog that most IT professionals don’t already know by heart. But because it is such a nicely distilled, explained, and illustrated piece of work, I commend it to them to share with their users. And because most IT professionals are also IT advisors and informal tech support staff for their friends and families, they can recommend this piece beyond the confines of the workplace as well.
