Chapter 10

Security

In this chapter, we’ll discuss how implementing proper security can provide protection from many of the risks discussed in previous chapters. We’ll see how using good passwords is a basic line of defense, and how locking down elements of an account prevents information from being seen by the wrong person. We’ll also discuss some new threats in this chapter, inclusive to fake accounts, doxxing, and how search engines can display considerable amounts of information available on social media sites and other online resources.
