Brazos Press Virtual Integrity: Faithfully Navigating the Brave New Web

It's unavoidable-every time you surf the Web you are bombarded with temptations vying for thoughts, dreams, time, and money. As a high-ranking government computer security expert and an avid personal Internet user, Daniel Lohrmann knows these lures well. In Virtual Integrity, he sets out to answer an important question: How can we safely surf our values?

Approachable and essential for all Web users, this book reveals the vast scope of the current battle, creative new answers to the problem, and practical steps everyone can follow. Delving into more than just commonly discussed issues of Internet gambling and pornography, Lohrmann offers a rare holistic vision for how to avoid "integrity theft" and unpacks a revolutionary new paradigm for integrity security. Some of the topics he covers include:

  • connecting our offline values and our online world
  • why filtering is no longer enough
  • guarding against identity and integrity theft
  • avoiding online career pitfalls
  • how web marketing targets us

Daniel J. Lohrmann directs the State of Michigan's Office of Enterprise Security and is Michigan's chief information security officer. He was recently named one of the "25 Most Influential People in the Security Industry" by Security Magazine. Lohrmann is an award-winning computer security expert and sought-after speaker at technology conferences around the country.

This book has a few good ideas, but you have to slog through a lot of repetitive information to get to them. I was so worn-out from reading the book that any ambition to try any of the ideas has vanished.

This is an excellent book. I read it over the course of two days. The author, Chief Information Security Officer for the State of Michigan, has a lot of interesting ideas and is well qualified to write regarding the topic of maintaining your integrity while surfing the internet. If you find the title of the book interesting then this would be a good book for you to purchase for yourself or as a gift for the "geek" you know.
