    Interests in Cyber Security:

    "I am very interested in cybersecurity because cybersecurity involves not only businesses and governments. Your computer, tablet, and phone may contain information that hackers and other criminals want to have, such as the email address, name, and date of birth of others.Anything that relies on the Internet to communicate or connect to a computer or other smart device can be affected by security breaches. This includes:
    • Communication systems such as email, phone and text messages
    • Transportation systems, including traffic control, car engines, aircraft navigation systems, Government database, including social security numbers, licenses, tax records
    • Financial system, including bank accounts, loans and salaries
    • Medical systems, including equipment and medical records
    • Education system, including grades, transcripts and research information.
    What is my role in cybersecurity? It’s important to recognize the different types of risks that exist in the online world. When online, keep this in mind: Stop. Think. Connect. Stop for a moment. Think about how you will take care of your information and personal data before acting. Connect responsibly. "
