The Bulletproof Computer

For the next two weeks I will be teaching a course designed to help computer users secure their computers and networks from Internet attacks.

The Bulletproof Computer

Learn how to harden your computer from Internet threats. Computer Security is not just virus protection any more. You could be infected with a "Trojan Horse" or spyware, which is recording your keystrokes or has turned your computer into a Zombie Host for e-mail spammers. Hear about the basic risks associated with your Internet connection. Learn how to detect and remove viruses, ad-ware, spyware, and Trojans from your computer, and how to secure your computer from exposure to the never-ending array of new threats. While no computer security system will be 100% effective against every threat, you will learn how to set up defenses to prevent most Internet-borne exploits. We will also look at Parental Control software and services. This course is valuable for any computer user with a full time, high speed cable or DSL connection to the Internet.
