Carey parker, the author of Firewalls Don’t Stop Dragons- A Step by Step Guide to Computer Security For Non-Techies has been a software engineer for about 24 years, and the informal 'IT guy' for his friends and family. In recent years, particularly after the Edward Snowden revelations in 2013, he became deeply concerned about computer security and privacy. " I've always had a knack for explaining technical topics to non-technical people, so I decided to write a book on cybersecurity for the masses", he explains. "Of course, I did plenty of research for the book and enhanced my general knowledge on the topic. But I think one of the most interesting things I learned was just how hopeless people feel about protecting themselves online. Computers and the Internet are fabulous tools, but most people feel they are completely beyond comprehension - and they just give up; My goal is to reach these people - explain what they need to know in a way that they understand, followed by simple and concrete steps they can take to vastly improve their personal security and privacy." In 2014, Parker combined his passion for computers, cybersecurity and fantasy novels with the long-time desire to write a book.
