Some Really Good Security Advice for the Everyday Computer User from Paul, Paul and Bill

Was making my typical rounds of the blogs that are associated with the What’s On My PC blogroll (see blogroll round up HERE) and noticed three articles, from three bloggers (Paul, Paul, and Bill), that are offering up some very important security info (first aid) advice to people that I want to share with my readers.

  1. To be publicly complimented in such a fashion, by a man of your caliber, in the same breath as Bill Mullins and Paul Lubic, is a tremendous compliment and an honor I will always value.

    October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (I know. Most people think it is Halloween) and this year’s slogan is “Stop. Think. Connect. Protect yourself and help keep the web a safer place for everyone.”

    It is true – “In this digital age, we are all connected, and each of us plays an important role in securing cyberspace.” I invite your readers to participate and learn more, and these writers are a great place to start.

    Thank you.

    Best,
    Paul
