Product Description

From the Back Cover

Home Network Security Simplified


A straightforward, graphic-based reference for securing your home network


Jim Doherty

Neil Anderson


Phishing. Malware. Spyware. Trojan horses. Firewalls. Parental controls. If you have a home computer connected to the Internet, you need to understand these security terms. If that connection is high-speed (always on) or you run a wireless network, your need–your vulnerability–is that much greater. Now, with Home Network Security Simplified, you can get illustrated, easy-to-digest information written specifically for your needs.


For each class of security threat, Home Network Security Simplified provides a tutorial–including tricks and tools that hackers use, a primer on network security design fundamentals, and step-by-step instructions on implementing security solutions. The authors also offer tips for monitoring your network and show what to do in the event of a security breach. Specifically, you will learn how to:

  • Set up a firewall
  • Secure your wireless network
  • Stop adware and spyware
  • Keep your children safe from online threats
  • Prevent a virus outbreak
  • Avoid Internet scams


Home Network Security Simplified features engaging four-color illustrations throughout, as well as informative security tips and pointers to other resources for more advanced information. Use this book to find the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your home network and your information are secure.

Was what I needed Aug. 23 2007
By MW - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Home Network Security Simplified is probably too elementary for most, but I was unsure as to how to secure my home wi-fi and this book methodically walked me through it. After getting the security features on my wireless router set up, it was sort of a "hand-against-the-head" realization along the lines of "I should have been able to figure that out by myself!" but the bottom line is I have security enabled now and I didn't before. For me, that was worth the price of the book.
