Identity theft is at record levels. There is no privacy on the Internet. Our businesses, nonprofits, schools, and government institutions are under attack from cyber criminals. Our power grid is vulnerable. Social media is being manipulated by our enemies. Our way of life is at-risk in ways never before imagined.

It’s time to do what Americans have done for more than 200 years. It’s time to act. It’s time to defend ourselves, our families, our places of work, our communities. It’s time to become cyber guardians.

This talk is about what you need to do to be a cyber guardian with the knowledge, skills, and commitment needed to meet the cyber crisis. As a mother or father, a son or daughter, a worker, a manager, an owner, a citizen.

My objective is not to frighten you but to awaken you to the crisis we face, and provide you the basics of cyber defense.
