Who are we?
ProtectMe.blog is a resource for everyday people who want to live more secure and private lives in an increasingly digital world.
We spend a significant part of our lives online and interacting with technology – using mobile devices, social media, online shopping, smart/digital assistants and so on.
However, the information we need to be able to stay secure can sometimes be confusing or hard to find.
In addition, many people are introduced to the concept of security [some of you may know this as “cybersecurity’] either through boring corporate training programs or fear-inducting news reports.
Our aim is to humanize security information, remove the fear, uncertainty and doubt and engage you with practical steps you need to help you and your family stay safe in a digital world.
Our approach organizes the overwhelming amount of available security and privacy advice in a manner that is relevant and easily transferrable to your specific digital lifestyle.
We are not trying to reinvent the wheel or anything like that. We simply hope to bring a fresh narrative to this important aspect of people’s lives.
Through ProtectMe.blog, we want to help you understand the risks associated with using technology so that you can make informed decisions, secure the technology that you currently use and maintain security and privacy as a lifestyle.
