Think Before You Click


I have noticed a palpable fear in the people with regard to cybercrimes. Their minds are besieged by questions like: is my money in the bank safe from cyber criminals?

What should I do to remain safe in cyber space? What should I not do? What to do if I lose my money to a cybercriminal or if someone circulates a morphed photo of my daughter? These fears are not unfounded. These fears are mainly due to the lack of knowledge about cybercrimes and the preventive / remedial measures which people can take to remain safe in cyber space.

This excellent book by "Dr. K. Rama Subramaniam and CA K R Praveena" will precisely do this by raising awareness amongst the public regarding cybercrimes and the measures they can take for their safety in cyber space. The book, written in a lucid and easily comprehensible manner, takes the reader through an exciting journey of "cyber discovery."
