Threats to Your Security
Computer security is as important as locking your house, even more so.
Threats come in all sorts of forms; drive-by downloads, phishing, spam,
malware (viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, keyloggers, rootkits, adware) and
identity theft to name a few.
It is estimated that over 58% of PC's in the United States have been attacked by malware.

When you "get on the internet"
When you connect your computer to the Internet, you open a door to the world and
become part of the internet.
The time it takes to access a web site anywhere in the world is the same amount
of time that it takes for anyone to contact your computer.
Imagine your house with no doors, no windows and no locks.
This is your computer without anti-virus / anti-malware software or firewall software / hardware.
In computer terms, a computer that is physically thousands of miles away from your
computer is just seconds away electronically.
If you use your computer to manage money, personal information such
as birthdates, Social Security number, bank account etc, criminals want your computer.
