OK Digital Warriors, this lesson is Secure Browsing Part 2 – Risks.
We’ve already covered Part 1 – Installing Firefox, HTTPS Everywhere, and what HTTPS/SSL is. In this short lesson, we are going to cover the risks you face. In the next lesson, we’ll talk about how to combat the risks with settings, add-ons and OPSEC.
Why is this important? As stated in Part 1, your browsing is probably your largest daily online exposure next to your phone. Your data is collected, correlated, associated with others, and your patterns are analyzed (Culper’s SPACE again). Furthermore, there are ways to use malicious code to penetrate your End Point Security through the browser. You need to be aware these threats so you can eliminate or counter them.
