Book Review: Conquer the Web: The Ultimate Cybersecurity Guide by Nick Wilding; Tim Mitchell; Maureen Kendal; Nick Ioannou
Title: Conquer the Web: The Ultimate Cybersecurity Guide
Author:(s) Nick Wilding; Tim Mitchell; Maureen Kendal; Nick Ioannou
Stars: 3 1/2 stars
I was hoping this would be something I could use as a reference tool when it comes to understand the internet as a mother of young children. In all honestly it wasn't anything I didn't already know which was disappointing because I do not see myself as well versed in this world. Everything that is mention are things I do daily but in fact I already know what not to do when it comes to free WIFI and I felt the authors in many ways talk down to the average consumers.
While Conquer The Web gives readers stories that will help those with very little knowledge of the internet to fix their issues the average every day consumer who is being raised with this lifestyle will find it giving very little new information.
It might be a great introduction to preteen's who do not know anything else but a life of internet web use but for those who are in the here and now this is nothing more than a reminder of what you are already doing.
