My Book titled: Too Late You're Hacked! – Defending Your Small Business’ Computers and Networks

Stage 4 editing – which means I reviewed their comments and fixed some more contextual issues, some clarity issues, and others. Indicated 15 items to watch when publishing software has manuscript.

Grammar editing is next (not sure how long that will take), but the manuscript at 41k words needs a once over with a grammar expert.

The steps after that will consist of the manuscript moving off the Word platform(8.5” x 11”) into the Book publisher software. (the book will be 6” x  9”) here is where we will find out how many pages it will be. With 38 illustrations, and 91 citations, an appendix with a glossary, and  a PCI outline.

We are not done yet but I see the light at end of the tunnel.

Cover art is being worked on - the following is the basic media image with a logo placeholder.

Yes we (as a society) have a problem.

Most people do not want to talk about Cybersecurity for a variety of reasons (nod your head if you agree)

Many people (some say 30%) are not doing what is necessary to protect their machines properly.

Managers or owners are not aware of the dangers they are in, think they are not a target(too small to get attacked) or another reason. Psychology of Security: 30% of people are unwilling to spend money on the chance they will lose less money. they think it is a gamble that is worth it.

No communication of problems or when one needs help, no problems here, causes a lot of people to not pay attention (especially when they just keep operating as normal and nothing happens)

Gambling with risk is a unique gamble that depends on the hacker's good graces.

This causes problems for the rest of us as the machines with problems will be used to attack everyone.

Thus the Catch22 - People which do think they have a problem - even if they get a problem will not ask for help except when it is too late already (after a successful attack it is too late)

What will actually make everyone that needs it perform preventative measures (spend money to possibly lose less money)

This is why I have written a book that will be released shortly - within the first quarter of 2021 - as we are finalizing editing and other publishing tasks. Get on our mail list to learn more about the book: mail list link.
