As unstructured summertime looms, kids and teens are likely to be spending more time on the Internet and texting. Now, a free downloadable book is available to help them stay safer online and while using a mobile device. Own Your Space, the industry-leading Internet security book was first written by Linda McCarthy, a 20-year network and Internet-security expert. This all-new free edition — by McCarthy, security pros, and dedicated teenagers — teaches youths and even their parents how to keep themselves “and their stuff” safer online.
