Thanks for taking time to create this course ! I want to get started now, and want to make sure my PC running Win 8.1 is ready for the course, and to stay safe. Have few questions :
- What anti-virus firewall suite do you recommend ?
- For malware - is malware bytes ok to use ?
- What is or are your suggested Web browsers?(to stay safe and not be be tracted when I go shopping online)
Hi, I would like to answer your questions fully but it’s just not possible. Whole sections of my courses cover the many variables to these questions. AV is covered in vol 4 (not yet available.) Firewalls and browsers vol 2.
To give you general advice.
I don’t recommend any
It’s one of the better ones and has a firewall.
Firefox is good for a base to start locking down for privacy but is a little weaker on security vs chrome. Chrome is better for security due to better sandbox but weaker on privacy due to googles business model. Covered in vol 2.
Use a virtual machine and make changes to this not your host os for testing.
Start the course and it will start to answer questions. Hope that helps.
