Topic: Cyber Education and the Next Generation of Cyber Leaders
In order to have a cyber-secure nation, we need to graduate cyber-capable adults who use the Internet safely, securely, ethically and productively. We can do this by reaching the next generation of cyber leaders at an earlier age and placing more importance on cyber education and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.
