Information security for everyone

Everyone deals with information. But how to make these deals more or less secure, if you are not a tech guru or a special agent?

Our plain language gives the opportunities and may cause the problems as well.

I see 2 dimensions in information security:

1) information has many variants of understanding (including text viruses) and therefore in this way some variant can be hidden;

2) information has one variant of understanding that makes it secure in proper implementation.

If so, technology (computers, firewalls, cryptography, etc.) is a second question. The first one is human made content and its understanding.

Imagine – everyone can have competitive knowledge in information security and therefore can save big money and managerial efforts that only big businesses and governments usually can afford.

What kind of problems you can see here?
