Securing your information and protecting your privacy is not something you should leave to out-of-date resources or second-hand advice.”

When it comes to securing your information and protecting your privacy, there is a lot of information out there. People often do their own “research” and, like many things, end up garnering information from second- or third-hand sources like “tech-savvy” friends or something they saw on TV. While some of this advice can be helpful, much of it is often outdated or may even provide a false sense of security, leading to disaster.
Thankfully, some resources and experts can get us back on track with good info to help us better secure our information. This piece by Sean Gallagher (former Ars Technica’s IT and National Security Editor and currently Senior Threat Researcher at SophosLabs) can help you sift through what is folklore and fact when it comes to securing your information and protecting your privacy.
