Tap into independent information sources
The guide draws upon a consensus of opinions from recognised privacy and cybersecurity advocates.
The problem with most of the information available is that it quickly becomes out of date.
The guide provides a framework and methodology with evergreen principles, strategies & techniques that you can use over and over again regardless of technological advances.

Just as you don’t need to be a mechanic in order to drive a car, you don’t need to be a cyber security expert to navigate safely and privately online!
The guide is for everyone from the technophobe to the already net-savvy and provides a way for you to manage your digital life that becomes second nature, just like driving becomes for experienced drivers.
Be part of an exciting new decentralised internet that cannot be centrally controlled or censored.
