Googling cyber security yields over 12,900,000 results. Googling “Home Cyber Security” and there are only 4,200 results. There is a void on websites specifically focused on informing everyday people about how to live a more cyber security lifestyle. Few blogs/websites are dedicated specifically to security discuss cybersecurity at a level where people with no security background can understand. Most cyber security websites/blogs are highly technical thus only usually visited by those in the cybersecurity career field.
The goal at Homecybersifu is to be your “sifu”, or teacher, to impart my knowledge of cyber that relates to the everyday person. I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and run across cyber information daily. I lot of the information I run across I believe home users should be aware of.
