    Start here:
    For the best background education; primarily on security & technical aspects: entirely free, go to ‘Security Now’ podcasts with Steve Gibson & Leo Laporte.
    These are 1+ hr. ‘sit down’ chats, that cover current issues, the how & why, with remedies for security issues, related to internet, networking, etc.
    Start with the early for computer functions & basics, and occasionally it gets a bit tekky (and very often an ‘acronym tsunami’), but Steve & Leo do it in real easy to understand chat format, that makes it painless & interesting (if you like the tech stuff to start with).

    College level education, free.
