Jan. 10, 2008 - PRLog -- http://www.Securitt.com The Concise Guide to Internet Security, has publicized a brief guide to Internet Security which covers 5 simple steps in 4 categories; to provide a safer Internet experience for the home computer consumer. Several topics are included which cover anti-virus and anti-spyware software as well as firewalls and wireless home router security.

This comprehensive guide attempts to cover the vast realm of Internet Security in as little as 15 to 20 minutes of reading. Although there are several more in depth Internet Security topics which could be discussed, the guide does cover pertinent information in a 'common sense' manner.

Some of the steps that are referenced within the online security guide are

Internet Browser Security
"Do not install tool bars when you download software"

Firewall Security
"Use a Hardware and Software based firewall when possible"

Anti-Virus / Anti-Spyware Security
"Do not trust advertisements that pop-up and offer to clean your pc"

Wireless Network Security
"Do not broadcast your SSID"

Within these guides the Security professional gives brief descriptions of the terminology and even provides some links to more in depth guides for further reference. In addition to the various guides; www.Securitt.com offers free assistance for problems which are posted in any the site's discussion area categories. Additional tips and advice from site visitors are also encouraged.

The page author, a seasoned Information Security Officer for a regional financial institution (who wishes to remain anonymous for security purposes) states that "Information Security Awareness is the number one prevention tool against cyber crime". The Security Professional also states "no amount of technology can secure against human error and naïve Internet practices".

Without doubt Internet threats and protection from Internet Security threats are ever changing and one must stay well informed if they are to know when they are at risk. Guides that expose threats, along with common knowledge of how to reduce the public risk to known vulnerabilities can help us all enjoy a safer internet.
