A useful resource for security information for people who use the internet for their work, surfing or email. It is designed to be a simplified resource and thus will not go into great technical detail.

Webmasters

It will be hopefully be useful for webmasters of small and self-managed websites who are always looking for extra information to make their life easier and keep their websites secure on the internet. There are many better sites for those managing large web servers but they still find useful tips.

It does not presume to be the definitive guide to internet security.

This is for the simple reason, no such thing exists – the nature of security on the internet is that if you have enough time and are dedicated enough there are few, if any, security systems that cannot be broken. This site is intended to give advice that should reduce your risks in the same way that locking your car will reduce the risk of it being stolen (but not eliminate the risk).
