Virtual Integrity Book Website

After over two years of writing and some very early mornings and late nights, my first book has finally launched. (Actually, the official launch date is November 1, but the book is actually available now.)

I invite you to come learn more about “integrity theft,” why filters are no longer enough, overcoming deception online, seven habits of online integrity, a “what if” look at the future of the Internet, what it means to “surf your values” and much more. The appendix offers recommendations on a new national strategy for cyber ethics, including roles for those organizations which haven’t traditionally been involved in this important topic.  

Yes, I talk about identity theft, hackers, protecting sensitive information, and I offer plenty of government and private sector “war stories.” However, this book is more about a way of life and practical ways to protect our character, reputation, career, and offline values in our new online world at home and work – the brave new web.  

The Virtual Integrity Book website was launched last night at our book launch celebration in Grand Ledge Michigan.

You can see the Book’s Table of Contents and more at Amazon’s information page on Virtual Integrity.  

I plan to write more in future blogs and perhaps even ask CSO to offer a book excerpt, but for now, I wanted you to know that the book officially launched last night.

As I head into my two year anniversary of launching this blog, I also want to say thanks for reading. Time has flown, but CSO Magazine has been great to work with. (No, I’m not going anywhere, I just want to say thanks.)  Also keep the comments coming. I tend to get as many via email as online, but either way, I appreciate your viewpoints.
