It's obvious...

Teens and young adults are attached to their phones. 

In a world where we (and yes most of all do it) happily and addictingly overshare everything about our lives, at what point will it be too late to understand the consequences of our own actions?

Before it’s too late, what if you could help your teens become their own cybersecurity experts?

What if you didn’t have to waste time crafting ways to get through to young adults that they must be careful about what they post online?

What if you could teach them how to protect themselves and learn how to pursue a lucrative career in cybersecurity as a byproduct?

Keeping up with how fast technology is advancing can be overwhelming… I hear you.
But persuading kids to be more intentional with their screen time
doesn’t have to be  problem anymore. At least it won’t be for you!

Imagine having a real actionable lesson on cybersecurity at your fingertips!

Here’s the problem…

You know that as children continue to grow up in conjunction with technology, we need to start having new conversations about what this means. Beyond that, we know that cell phones have greatly impacted the safety and mental health of children across the nation. 

However this subject is constantly avoided and neglected because it is complex and no one really understands the whole picture or long term consequences yet. But the effects on every single area of our life is clear: cyberbullying, stalking, sexting, you name it and the line has been crossed.

Then the thoughts creep in.


“I’m not a technologist, I don’t know the first thing about cybersecurity.”

“Who am I to tell kids how they should be using their phones?”

“This is super overwhelming and I don’t even know where to start.”

That’s where I come in.

What if…
You could have a ready-to-go lesson on staying safe online, building skills for a career in cyber, and other critical topics without having to go down a rabbit hole?

Let me show you what that looks like:

Can it really be that easy? Yes.

"Alison's cybersecurity presentation held our Scholars' attention from start to finish. Our Scholars had so many questions about cybersecurity and data tracking during the presentation. I really appreciated how Alison spoke to our Scholars about teen sexting and the repercussions. Her approach was not punitive, but informative which opened our Scholars up to discuss and think critically about the topic amongst themselves. After the presentation, we received an abundance of positive feedback from our Scholars and staff. We are looking forward to having Alison back again soon."

"I really enjoyed the presentation. I thought it was very straightforward. I felt that she gave myself and other Scholars a clear view of what we should be paying attention to when doing things on our phones and other electronics. Thank you again, Alison. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation."
