    Great meeting. Learned a lot. Met a lot of great people.

    It should be part of our responsibility to teach and inspire the younger crowd (i.e. High School students) about cyber awareness. One day they will be in our shoes and in tougher situations. Cyber Security doesn't get easier. It evolves and becomes more complicated...every day. A great organization I am apart of is CyberPatriot: The National High School Cyber Defense Competition. It is volunteer based program. Sign up and become a mentor for your local High School or find another other way to become involved in your local High School. *I do not work for CyberPatriot*

    My email address if you have questions: [masked] "What do you see beyond the mountains? And the correct answer is …we don’t know. But what we did know was something was wrong, and that we have to get some-where. We have to take that leap to get there."

      I paid $9 and parked right next to Research Hall. GMU charges for parking. Free parking is like the "no free lunch" these days.

    Enjoyed the sessions. Had to pay 9 dollars to park which was a bummer.
