Delivered as promised.
Before I picked up this book, I felt like I knew a lot of the subject matter--I mean, I'm an academic librarian, I work with information (and the Internet) every day, and I'm regularly telling students the importance of choosing and evaluating the right online sources for their papers. But in the past year, I've had a variety of experiences that make this book uber-relevant: finding undesirable information about someone on the Internet by simply searching their name, having my Facebook account and email get hacked, hearing countless stories of businesses pass over young graduates because of things they've shared on their (open) Facebook page, and being able to, with just a little clicking, find someone's entire digital life including photos of their children and their spouse that shouldn't have been so easy for me to access (via Picasa and a wide-open Facebook account). And I myself have a very active "digital life": I post on my blog, I write reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Yelp, I'm active on Facebook daily--the online environment is a place where I'm very comfortable "living" (although I knew someone who ended up closing his Facebook account while going through his divorce because he didn't want any information to possibly get leaked to her, and he was almost horrified by the amount and types of information people revealed about themselves on FB, including me. And yet--he posted reviews on Yelp. Pot? Meet your kettle.)

It seems day after day we give up tiny bits of privacy for convenience, things we would never do if we could see the "online paparazzi" stalking us, involved in our business with our own eyes. But because it's online, we share all KINDS of information--credit card data, personal information, personal stories, etc.--and don't even give it a second thought.

It is clear from the first page that the authors know their subject. Mr. Claypoole is a co-chair of the cyberspace privacy and data security subcommittee for the American Bar Association, and Mrs. Payton has her own business specializing in internet security, as well as serving as the CIO under President Bush (the younger). One of the most useful things about the book are the various resources sprinkled throughout the chapters telling you to check this site, or run this search, or ways to make your internet identity more secure. It's eminently practical and easy to read. I think a big reason so many of us have given up trying to manage our online identities is because it seems overwhelming, and the authors make it easy to divide that job up into bits and pieces, allowing you to feel like you have more control over your information and identity. And I have no children, but if I did? I think I'd be an Internet lockdown nazi (and Claypoole and Payton tell you how!) Goodness knows what kind of information kids would post about themselves if they were allowed to (and I've heard of horror stories about people finding things their children have posted on YouTube and FB).

Most of all, the authors are practical about how to manage your information and they certainly don't expect you to stay off the web entirely--but you can keep your life private. The last chapter, entitled 'Turning off the lights: choosing to be invisible online" gives you specific tips to regain your anonymity online. It's an interesting, relatable, easy-to-read book on something that we pretend doesn't affect us, but it definitely does. Every day. Every time we touch or click that icon that connects us to the web. So protect yourself!
I borrowed this book from my local library. A very informative read with good details about how your privacy online is jeopardized on a daily basis. The authors provide good facts and describe various scenarios with examples on how your personal information is extracted both legally and illegally. They also provide some sound advice on how to protect your identity and what tools you may use to be more vigilant in cyberspace. I did not however think it was necessary to read chapters six and nine which dealt with managing your online persona and marketing yourself for success. These two chapters threw me off from the topic I wanted to focus on which was how to protect myself and my identity online. Poor organization on the authors’ part there. Overall, good information but not necessarily worth paying $15 for.
Most of us spend a great deal of time online, whether conducting research for our jobs or connecting with friends and family on our social media sites. But let's be honest, how often do you think about protecting your online identity? Unless you live and breathe in the infosecurity arena, the reality is, you probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about your online privacy, let alone worrying about it. But by the end of this post, believe me, you'll think differently.

Ted Claypoole, an attorney and co-chair of the Cyberspace Privacy and Data Security Subcommittee of the American Bar Association's Business Law Section, and Theresa Payton, a security advisor and CEO of Fortalice, LLC, have written a must-read book entitled, "Are You Naked Online? Protecting You Internet Identity."

The book emphasizes the theme that "some aspects of our lives should not be shared with everyone...and you should have control over what you share and how you share it." However, that is easier said than done.

For family and friends who don't think about security on a daily basis, Claypoole and Payton provide an easy-to-understand explanation. Consider being at an airport in our post-9/11 world. Now, we all must walk through an X-ray machine. We feel exposed - but that is nothing when compared to how exposed we can feel as a result of the Internet.

So, instead of being naked online, make the conscious decision to be dressed when using the Internet. Keep important and confidential information offline. Use that famous rule: don't post anything that your grandmother or boss shouldn't see - that means credit card numbers, plans for when you will be away from home on a vacation, or photos from a late-night party when you might have had too much to drink. So, before you post anything, ask yourself, could this information ever be used against me? Then ask yourself a second time before you click okay or post.

Even after you clean up your digital footprint, you cannot rest. Protecting your digital footprint is an ongoing 24/7 process. The scary truth is that you cannot rest because the cyber criminals who want to steal your identity NEVER rest. But, you're better prepared to proactively protect your digital footprint after reading Claypoole's and Payton's book.
Nothing personal
Kind of boring reading but I'm not a techie. No photos in this book except the front cover.
