Author Peter J Canavanabout this book: Today's college students face threats to their personal safety that generations before did not have to deal with. New problems exist in both the digital world and the physical world, and can be harmful or even deadly. Thinking a problem won't happen to you will not make it any less likely. The solution is to be aware of what threats exist, learn how to protect yourself, and know what steps to take should a problem arise to you or around you.

The rise of the Internet, social media and cellular phones has created an interconnected world where new digital threats such as phishing attacks and identity theft can come from anywhere. Spins on traditional problems such have bullying have evolved into cyberbullying. These new personal safety concerns are something that both parents and students have to be aware of and get educated on in order to be protected and secure.

As if that wasn't enough to worry about, new offline threats in the form of terrorism, lone wolf attacks, and active shooters can threaten your safety no matter where you live, work or go to school. It can be paralyzing to think about, and it is easy to live in denial rather than have to confront these new realities.

I created The Ultimate Guide To College Safety: How To Protect Yourself From Online & Offline Threats to Your Personal Safety At College & Around Campus to fill the void of comprehensive personal safety information for students and their families. As the father of three boys, my oldest began college in the fall of 2017, and he was one of the factors that drove me to write this guide for all students. With over four million new students entering college each year, I realized that there was a huge need for this information. It took me the better part of two years to write, and the information it contains is the result of both my real-world experience and tons of research. The cover is simple, direct, and communicates the benefits to the reader; there is purposely no image to detract from it.

I have a unique combination skills which makes me uniquely qualified to write this book:
1. I am a university public safety professional (college public safety experience)
2. I am an IT security consultant (online security expertise)
3. I am a martial artist and self-defense instructor (offline personal safety expert)

Since 1995 I have run my own information technology company and have put into practice the information detailed in the book for hundreds of my clients. Part of what I do is keep their systems, networks, servers, email, accounts and web sites secure from digital threats. Many of these best practices are explained in an easy-to-understand format that can be followed by anyone in order to secure their own technology and online accounts.

I have trained in the martial arts and taught self-defense for over 20 years. In that time I have trained hundreds of men, women and children how to protect themselves from physical threats as well as build their confidence. This book contains vital information about how to achieve the "warrior mindset" so that you are able to persist and survive any threat to your physical safety. This training will also assist you in overcoming any obstacles that stand in your way for the rest of your life – personal or professional. Basic information about how to effectively defend yourself is included in the form of pictures with detailed descriptions that can be mastered by anyone who wishes to learn. It is not a substitute for actual training, but it is a great place to start your education about physical self-defense.

As a public safety professional, I have seen what threats exist to today's college students from the inside. Alcohol problems, party and date rape drugs, sexual assaults, prescription medication abuse, caffeine and energy drinks, dorm room security, cooking and electrical safety, and more are all covered in this comprehensive book. There are even sections on how to deal with problem roommates, hygiene and health, and maintaining the proper attitude.

Get the next best thing to being there for your child during their college years and beyond. I am confident that both you and they will benefit immensely from this book.

Stay safe!
