My name is Brett Christensen and I own and operate the Hoax-Slayer website. I also created this course for you.
I have been researching and writing about scams, hoaxes, malware, and other computer security threats for around 17 years. The Hoax-Slayer website debunks Internet and social media hoaxes, exposes scams, and warns Internet users about current malware attacks.
Via this course, I hope to pass on some of the knowledge I have gained over the years so that ordinary computer users can learn how to better protect themselves, their family, and their friends from the many security threats that plague the Internet, email, and social media.
HoaxSlayer began in 2003 as a small Yahoo email discussion group. It has grown into a large and well-respected website that receives more than a million visitors per month and has thousands of pages.
I live in Queensland, Australia with my wife and family.
