Remember the children’s classic The Emperor’s New Clothes?

Check out this great piece from our friends at AOL, which compares how the tale relates to real-life lessons with your PC’s security. The article defines terms like sniffing, sidejacking, and evil twin while explaining that “an unsecured public WiFi network at your favorite coffee house, for instance, can be like a paradise for hackers where they’re given free reign of unsecure laptops.”

Everyone wants to know exactly what security is really needed on their laptop, and by following all of the important lessons listed in this article, you’ll prevent “feeling a draft from being underdressed with your laptop’s security.”
