Printable Cybersecurity Guides: the Story

Hacks and digital theft cost US citizens more than $1.4 Billion in the last year. Seniors aged 60+ are the most vulnerable group, accounting for a quarter of financial losses. [1]

I was inspired to create these printable guides after my grandmother was targeted by an email scammer impersonating her grandchildren to steal her bank information.

Luckily, she didn’t fall for it this time. But when I asked her about changing her passwords, she mentioned that she used the same password for all her accounts. This obviously wasn’t very safe, but she struggled to remember everything I told her about setting strong passwords, how to tell when pop-ups are malicious, and etc.

These sheets were originally printed emails that I sent my grandmother to help her avoid scams like the email one she almost fell for. She wanted to share them with her friends, so I partnered with a designer to make the text larger and easier to read for people who are farsighted or colorblind.

Now we’re making these guides freely available at HighSpeedExperts to help reduce cybercrime in 2019. Don’t let your family members be a victim in the new year — share these printable guides and help them set up better security.
