The world of the internet is built on openness. From the open source tools used to build the web to the free speech that we enjoy in the United States when it comes to what we post, there is little filter for a determined individual of even relatively limited means.
I want us to talk about the basic techniques that we can use to secure those means. There are a variety of reasons that you would want to secure your website, browsing, and communications. These include hackers looking to use your website and computer for nefarious purposes, scammers looking to extract money from you and your customers, all the way up to state-sponsored actors with specific agendas.
Let's set up a more secure version of our websites, our businesses, and ourselves together.
