This Legal Almanac title discusses some of the most important Internet security methods, including the effective use of passwords, antivirus software, firewalls, encryption technology, and vigilance about the type of information shared on the Internet. Internet identity theft is also addressed, along with Internet privacy policies, online privacy protection for children, and laws designed to protect private information. Finally, the almanac sets forth the role of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in enforcing privacy rights and reviews some of the major enforcement cases brought by the FTC. Appendixes provide resource directories, applicable statutes, and other pertinent information and data, and a glossary contains definitions of the terms used throughout the almanac.
