Sabrina Koncaba Vice President, Academic Outreach, Training And Development
“I believe that we are living in a digital world that provides individuals of all ages the ability to connect and communicate globally without restrictions. As a result, children and adolescents have not learned the skills necessary in order to protect themselves from various types of nefarious actors within the cyberspace environment. In order to combat this epidemic, I desire to teach children to appropriate online behavior by providing applicable information security education opportunities that will empower them to protect themselves from potential threats by taking appropriate action.”
