Instructor - Safe and Secure Online - 2011 - Present

(ISC)² Foundation’s Safe and Secure Online program is the first-of-its-kind, initiative that brings top cyber security professionals from business and government into classrooms and organizations for free to teach cyber safety to kids. The Safe and Secure Online program was founded in 2006, with a mission to introduce responsible computing in an early age and improve society by helping kids learn how to protect themselves online.

The Safe and Secure Online Program is a cutting edge presentation that allows children between the ages of 7-14 to interact with each other and their presenter while learning cyber security skills. To fit the needs of the different age groups the presentation has been customized with learning objectives and teaching materials appropriate for ages 7-10 and 11-14 age groups. The third presentation is aimed at educating parent and teachers about online safety. What sets the Safe and Secure Online Program apart from other online safety programs is that the presenters are trained information security professionals. Students tend to gravitate toward them as mentors and role models and want to soak up as much information as possible. Topics covered in the presentation vary from cyber bullying, online identity, online image protection, social networking, and computer safety. The Safe and Secure Online program was first introduced in the United Kingdom; we now have programs available in Canada, Hong Kong, and the United States. To date we have reached over 70,000 students worldwide.
