Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Dunham Books of Nashville announced today the release of Violated Online: How Online Slander Can Destroy Your Life & What You Must Do to Protect Yourself, which elucidates the dangers of the Internet with personal experiences of those who have been affected by slanderous statements posted online.
Author and business executive Steven Wyer takes his and others personal incidents of online reputation damage and puts them into simple and practical terms for how anyone can be aware of and can avoid the myriad of dangers currently existing on the Internet as well as how to defend themselves when attacked online.
The book delineates how Americans are facing issues evolved around their basic privacy rights and how they are being exploited by data aggregators and cookies, as well as profiteers that cash in on suffering.
Violated Online offers a collection of examples from online slander victims and presents more than 50 specific tips that readers can follow to better prepare themselves for an unexpected online attack. For example, many people do not know that search engines retain emails for a period of time even after they are “deleted.”
Whether the reader is a small business owner, a high schooler on Facebook and Twitter, a journalist, a celebrity, or just someone who enjoys playing games online, Violated Online is the definitive and must-have resource for anyone who uses the Internet.
“If it can happen to me, it can happen to you,” says Wyer. “Negative information found on the Internet impacts every area of life, and yet there is little that most people can do to correct it, until now. Violated Online equips Internet users with all of the necessary safeguards to protect themselves from being victimized online.”
Wyer serves as Managing Director for Reputation Advocate, a firm solely focused on assisting individuals and businesses attempting to address derogatory content found on the Internet.
“We are thrilled to be publishing a book as timely and topical as Violated Online,” says David Dunham, Publisher of Dunham Books and CEO of The Dunham Group, Inc. “We’re confident this book can help erase the damage to those whose reputations have been damaged by the Internet.”
