What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

During the process of designing this image, I used a lot of intensive thinking that helped me imagine state of cyber security using interesting representations to do story telling of a very interesting and technical topic. The incredible way in which cyber security affects our daily life helped me to create small images as a part of storytelling process to create a single images which show a compete picture of cyber security in one single image. During the initial stage I told my wife about this challenge and she didn’t understood what I was talking about and later I explained a scenario using my images. So it was literally story telling my wife how cyber security affects us as a couple. This whole process was a complete magic for me as I used the same process to unite all my ideas together. I hope your team is able to understand my design and image.

I graduated with a Civil engineering degree in 1973, and was offered material management position from a big government construction company. I loved working in construction domain and managing various teams, but after 25 years of job the industry was just wasn’t very appealing to me. After retiring from job 8 years ago I had lot of ideal time and started learning about technology. I ended up becoming an avid reader of technology stuff and trying new technology devices. Cyber security is domain that I have been following it since last 2 years and I want to see how I can push the limits to learn new things from youtube and learn new softwares also.

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

Being a construction manager, I am always working with teams, new design and the real world problems. This challenge seemed like a perfect fit with my technology interests and the spare time I have after retirement. I have always wanted to do something in cyberspace with all it's mysterious things, and now I had the opportunity. Thus I thought a lot about it and asked a lot of my family members & kids over their opinion. This helped me a lot to so that me, my family and general people around us could understand the importance of privacy and cyber security. The most exciting part was to put in a sketch all the ideas that were in my head and to create a story around the vision.

Hello Ramesh Lal  Happy to see your contribution to the Cybersecurity challenge. Love the way you've brought the idea to life through this sequence. How would you consider pushing this idea further? We've had a large number of very interesting creations, have you had a chance to browse other submissions? There's a very interesting conversation around cybersecurity going on!
