How jonnyi started their book cover journey
Hacking for Parents: Cutting through the Bulls**t
I am a cyber security consultant who has been helping big businesses for almost a decade protect themselves from hackers and cyber threats. I have helped banks protect themselves from organised crime, pharmaceutical companies from competitors trying to steal secretive drug formulae and helping FTSE100 companies recover from some of the world’s largest data breaches. With this book, I now want to take the protection principles from big business to the everyday person / parent to help protect their family from cyber threats.
You have been misled.
Existing cyber security advice for parents is wrong. It exploits our fear of the unknown and mandates a thousand things we apparently must do to protect our family from cyber-crime. Quite frankly, most of this is overkill for us. The vast majority of us don’t need the same level of protection as a high-profile political figure or a wealthy Russian oligarch. We need guidance that is ruthlessly pragmatic.
It’s time we cut through the unnecessary bullsh**t and waged war on the unnecessary and the excessive. We no longer need lengthy monologues of how terrifying the world of cyber-crime is. We get it. All this does is cause us to get paralysed by complexity leading us to do nothing – resulting in no protection at all.
It’s high time we empowered parents with the same quality of advice and tools that big banks and corporates have used for years. Contained within you’ll find a simple system that provides practical ways to protect your family that don’t inconvenience you, cost the earth or stop you doing the things you enjoy. We cover everything from our kids over-sharing on social media, sextortion and cyber bullying, to phone and phishing scams targeted at our grandparents.
You might be surprised how simple it really is…!

What colors do you want to see in your design?
Looking for original designs that are abstract and not stereotypical. I love designs that have double meanings/interpretations. Would like the design to reflect one (or several) of the key messages of the book which are;
- cutting through the bullsh**t, i.e. making something complex very simple and easy to follow (giving it to parents straight)
- protecting ourselves from cyber crime doesn't have to be complicated
- parents have been previously misled to think it is hard to protect the family from cyber crime. I am demystifying this and making it clear what needs to be done
- unapologetically pragmatic (no-nonsense!)
What to avoid
Stereotypical Stock Images - please try and create your own creative imagery. In the internet security world there are many stereotypical stock designs associated with it, e.g. padlocks, shields, a cloaked man in a hoody sitting at a computer in shadow. I want to avoid these stereotypes please.
