I believe that in order for cyber security… Cyber security is too big and scary for most people, it seems extremely complicated. If we can show different aspect of cyber security using the most basic of shapes I believe we can bring more people into the conversation. I want to create a template/visual design system made out of basic shapes (squares, circles, rectangles) that can be remixed and used to create unlimited illustrations representing various types of cyber security terms.

Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)

Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)

I have been learning and expanding my cyber security knowledge for the past several years however everyone in my immediate circle, friend and family is clueless. I believe we need a lot more basic education available for people who are not in the Tech fields. Similar to how few decades ago, people started getting educated about STD’s, the dangers of STD’s and how to prevent them, I believe we need to have a conversation about Digital “diseases” that we all can try to prevent.
