- Personal Security examines attacks on passwords and the dangers of social engineering. It also covers identity theft and social networking risks and provides information about personal security defenses to protect users from attacks.
- Computer Security explores computer attacks that use different types of malware such as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and botnets. It includes information about how to protect a computer by managing patches, examining firewalls, installing anti-malware software and configuring personal firewalls. It also gives guidance on recovering from an attack.
- Internet Security provides an overview of how the internet works, the security risks that go along with using it, and how to use the Internet securely.
- Mobile Security examines attacks that come through wireless networks such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, along with attacks on mobile devices such as tablets, laptops and smartphones. It also explores how networks and devices can be secured.
