Firewalls and the Cloud: Monday Productivity Pointers

Firewalls and the Cloud

More Monday Productivity Pointers at lynda.com.

In this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers, we’ll take a look at how to secure your computer online to protect your privacy and data. We’ll go back to basics and explore how data travels through the Internet, what a firewall is and how it works, and the types of online threats a firewall can protect you from.

In my second, members-only video this week, I’ll explain “the cloud”—a term used to refer to online, web-based apps of all varieties. I’ll cover what this means to you in practice, and some pros and cons of moving your work to online, cloud-based services.
