Over the course of just a few years, the Internet has morphed from a handy collective knowledge resource tool into an integral life-management system, redefining all notions of control where identity management is concerned. In this grand social experiment, online innovation has far outpaced awareness and the advent of legal and regulatory protections. Individuals have only recently begun to contemplate the long-term impact of online behaviors and the importance of managing one’s digital identity, while corporate and criminal interests have quickly adopted strategies and technologies that work to undermine consumer security and privacy. Even the most savvy of users routinely place themselves in peril while operating under faulty assumptions or with a detrimental lack of understanding in conducting personal and business related activities online. Protecting Your Identity: Are You Naked Online? by Ted Claypoole and Theresa Payton offers readers the opportunity to better understand the prerequisite fundamentals essential for successfully and safely navigating the rapidly evolving cybersphere. The material is presented in simple, non-technical language that is readily accessible to Internet users of all ages and aptitudes, and should be considered mandatory study for anyone who is thinking about, or has already taken the plunge, into the virtual domain. -- Antony M. Freed, Managing Editor at Infosec Island
An absolute must-read for any individual or parent who is, or who has, a computer in their home or a cell phone in their child's hand. -- Mary Kay Hoal, Founder, President Yoursphere.com and YoursphereForParents.com
Claypoole and Payton address. . . broadly how to take charge of your online image. They provide extensive advice, beginning with a process of self-examination: do an Internet search for yourself and see what you find. How do you come across on your friends’ social networking pages? What images of yourself can you find online? What you would make of all this information if it were somebody else’s? The authors then give practical advice on how to tailor your online persona to reflect how you want to appear: what you can change, and what you cannot, how to promote that desired persona in search engine results and demote the bad bits you can’t fix. There is even advice on how to be anonymous online. . . Packed full of useful tips, telling examples and surprising highlights, this is an excellent book that addresses important issues on online privacy in an easily accessible way., Online Information Review
