Online Security Considerations
            and Protective Tactics

Help! I think we have another Virus.


I'm really pleased to welcome you to our site.

I hope you arrived here because of your desire to avoid the scourge of spyware, viruses and other nasty threatening stuff while you try to enjoy your online surfing activities.

The main purpose of our websites is to do just that -- keep you safe from online predators.

Now that you are here, may we raise a few questions? No need to send any answers to us, the questions are for you to answer to yourself, because it's Your Online Security that you need to protect. The questions are simply to prompt your thoughts on creating a safe surfing environment for you, your family, and your friends.

     1. How did you get here?
     2. Have you found what you're looking for?
     3. Were you looking for something specific?
     4. Did you find it?

     5. Are you here to learn how to protect your security on the

        to Get easy to understand guidelines and basic advice?
        to Find and use inexpensive tools?
        to Get very plain and simple facts and help?

    6. How much do you want to know about protecting your

    7. Do you want guidance on using just the basics?

    8. Would you like to be a 'Smarter and Safer" Internet user,
and not be taken in by Geek-Speak and splashy promotions?

The purpose of our "Internet Security Awareness Campaign" is to help you answer all of those questions with easy to understand quality information.

    9. Are you among the "Ageless Internet Users", who might be uncertain about what to do next ?
       (Ageless in our book is the group from toddler to forever)

                     Well then, here's the secret --
There is no secret nor mystery involved.

It simply starts with having 3 or 4 basic tools
installed on your computer.

           1. A firewall program
           2. Anti-virus program
           3. Anti-spyware software
           4. Anti-Spam program

All of these are available for FREE from many software providers.

Just having them is great, and it's the basic foundation to your Internet Security efforts, but you need to keep them up-to-date.

The people who create these helpful programs make that fairly easy to do.

    10. See how easy it is?

OK, but where do you get these programs and how do you know which ones to select?

Our "Internet Security Awareness Campaign" answers those questions for you.

The 'Firewalls-and-Virus Protection" website is loaded with sources of FREE security tools, definitions and discussions explaining nearly all of the 'security' terms and basics you'll come across, articles, and tips on protecting your Personal Identity from theft, etc.

The FREE monthly "Security Alert News Reporter" newsletter covers updates on recent virus threats and how to remove them, available FREE eBooks and Reports on Family and Child Safe websites, progress by various authorities and organizations in removing and controlling  SPAM and Spyware, and much more.

The "Security Alert Blog"* includes our timely updates and
comments, weekly and sometimes daily, on important trends, Security Alerts, and generally helpful information and advice.
It also provides an opportunity for visitors to make comments,
ask questions and critique our postings.
* What's a Blog?
A Blog (web log) is a quick and easy way to share timely
information (alerts, updated news, trends and developments,
answer questions, express opinions and exchange views).
The really valuable and outstanding features of blogging are
that it is interactive -- news, views and opinions are exchanged in a timely manner.

We encourage you to be a part of our crusade to help your family, friends and associates be safe when surfing the Internet.

Just guide them to the resources listed above that support our "Internet Security Awareness Campaign".

(Some astute parents have used these resources as learning assignments for their pre-teen and teen-age children)

By sharing your knowledge and experiences, we can all contribute to minimizing the grief and frustration being dumped on us by the malcontents and devious devils who write and distribute the evil spyware, viruses and other dangerous rubbish into our personal computers.

Thanks in advance for your participation.
