Brownie Cybersecurity

DEC 8 | 5:30 - 6:30 PM | $5 | BROWNIE | VIRTUAL

Welcome to the world of cybersecurity! We use computers every day to send emails, watch videos, and shop online. Computers are also a part of our lives in many other ways that aren’t as easy to see. Computers power up skyscrapers and streetlights, keep air conditioners and security systems humming, run medical devices in hospitals, control cars and planes, and much more. Cybersecurity is the way we protect all those computers—and ourselves—from crime.

In this event we'll learn the basics of cybersecurity with Fifth Third Bank. Workshop cost includes the price of a badge mailed after the workshop.
