Welcome to the Digital Life Rescue blog. Helping home and small business to function safely, securely and confidently in the digital world.

I’m Patrick Davy, an information security engineer for a global financial services company. In addition to my day job of building, configuring and implementing enterprise security solutions, I’m passionate about teaching people the basics of security, safety and privacy in the online digital world.

As I start to publish here, you will find a growing amount of information on safety and security for computers, networks, mobile devices, game consoles and more. Articles will explain why certain steps are necessary in a safety and security context, while giving you easy to follow instructions for taking these steps.

I will cover free solutions already built-in to your devices and low cost solutions that can add additional value.

N.B. The above steps enable Unicode Standard emoji characters and sequences in Hugo, however the rendering of these glyphs depends on the browser and the platform. [Read More]
