Traverse the Internet Superhighway Safely, Knowledgeably, and Maintain Control
For years, I’ve thought that everyone “behind the wheel” of a Personal Computer should have a basic level of competence regarding security, backup strategies, password organization, e-mail etiquette, and routine maintenance. Let’s face it – all owners of Internet connected devices potentially have a responsibility to each other to reduce the risks they may pose to themselves and each other. An infected device or one used in a negligent manner can raise risks – and these risks can easily be reduced with basic levels of education. While we know we must abide by State laws when operating a Motor Vehicle, no such demands are made on those who “cruise” the Internet. Back in early 2000, knowing there had been no effort to create such “rules”, I set out to change that. I created an e-Book entitled “Your Personal Computer Driver’s License”
Now, almost 15 years later, with the proliferation of mobile devices, we are not only faced with similar challenges, but the risks multiply as these devices are used more and more in moving vehicles, compounding the challenges I identified back then. Is the responsibility to educate owners and users of communication devices that of the reseller, the provider of the communication medium, the manufacturers of the hardware, the creators of the software, the state, all or none of these? Do we already have enough rules and regulations? Are we able to self-govern and self-educate?
