Another blog is collecting simple security tips 

The Financial Cryptography blog is usually technical but writer Ian Griggs has started a collection of security tips for non-technical people. So far he's got sound advice ranging from free and easy (install Firefox) to expensive (buy a Mac).

Financial Cryptography laments "I feel the lack of any good tip for phishing; there just isn't a good way to deal with that yet". I'll repeat my advice: do what you already know to do for phone calls. Keep secrets to yourself unless you're the one who placed the call or started the transaction. If someone called out of the blue and asked for your online banking password you'd hang up on them. Do the same for email.
