We are all exposed to online scams, attacks and harassment.
The good news: We can definitely defend ourselves,
And this does not require expertise but awareness, that is the essence of the book.
The internet is an amazing invention, as is everyone I surf,
Acquires, shares, searches all the time.
But in every good there is a bad - hackers and scammers exploit the network to their advantage:
We spread viruses and heresies, steal personal and credit card information and use scams based on our basic emotions, which can cause us to succumb to them.
The good news is that you don't have to be a great cyber expert to be safe online.
After nearly twenty years in the world of information and cyber security.
As a professional I have developed a set of tools and habits that I use in my day to day life to protect myself, my children and my business.
I want to share these tools with you, because network safety is a matter of awareness and skill.
I have gathered these tools and habits in my new book: "Safe Online" .
Because network safety is a matter of awareness and skill.
This book is designed to give you these tools so that you too will feel safe online,
Because network safety is just a matter of awareness and skill.
A little about the book
How many times have you received one of these emails?
"General and not personal face that uses intimidation"
"Did you order delivery?"
"I think $ 381 is a small price to keep between us ..."
I guess more than once. But what do you do with it?
How do I identify a scam message?
How is information backed up?
How are children and parents taught to defend themselves online?
These are exactly the questions my book has come to answer.
A little about me for you to know
I'm Mae Brooks-Kempler, (officially Meital, but they only call me that when they're mad at me),
Married to Itamar, and mother of three smurfs aged 10, 7 and 3.5.
I started my affair with the world of information security in high school when I was building websites and trying to overthrow Hezbollah's mail server. I did not even know it was called hacking.
In 2003, following a corridor conversation with a friend in the military, I entered the world of information security and fell in love.
Since then, I have been in the field. I went through a number of incarnations - from the hacker to the information security manager.
In recent years, I have been mainly involved in the managerial and training side of the world of information security,
Emphasis on building and leading campaigns to increase information security awareness in organizations.
I lecture in courses and conferences in Israel and around the world,
And in early 2020, I had the honor of being selected and standing on the most exciting stage of all: the TEDx Savyon.
The internet is an amazing tool and it's a shame not to use it. Hence, my vision was born - to create a safer world.
Nice to meet you!
