Publisher's Summary

If online data safety is your number one priority, then this book is not for you.

Whether you’ve been hacked in the past or not, worrying about your information security is a problem you can fix. This book will illuminate the illusion of data protection and what it means to have a "secure" online life. If you want to change your digital state from privacy and protection to striving and thriving, then listen to this audiobook! 

In this new and original book, author Niels Starling shares his unusual and unconventional narrative about information security. In a counterintuitive approach, Niels argues that the majority of internet users have too high a focus on information protection and online security. We all think our information is at risk when actually hiding it away runs the greatest risk.

The idea of "hackers" brings fear to many and causes us to create a skewed perception of what risks are actually lurking online. We are often spending unnecessary amounts of time strapping on our shields and armor and sharpening our swords to fend off security threats while not realizing the internet isn’t an all out war zone. This book aims to help shape a world where people share more and collaborate more online. You will gain insights toward: 

  • The vulnerability of open information
  • Peer-to-peer sharing and how it changes everything
  • The history of an internet revolution
  • An online philosophy that works
  • Open-source technologies and what the future can bring
  • How to safeguard what actually matters
  • Is cybersecurity important?
  • Ways to relax and enjoy life online
  • And much more! 

You can learn how to make your online presence more vibrant and rewarding, just buy now.
