The Path to Security Savviness

April 6, 2020

Summary

Consumers may install the latest security feature on their device but perhaps the most important question is, do they know how to use it? Kyla Guru, high school senior and CEO & founder of Bits N’ Bytes Cybersecurity, deems user education a crucial aspect of security that is often overlooked in favor of the technology itself and shares how she built her own organization to empower tech users in their everyday lives.

“If we teach the users these cybersecurity risk mitigation skills, then not only will they be more empowered to use technology to the fullest, but we'll be building trust between organizations and consumers, which will just allow these organizations to do much, much more than they're doing right now – just productively as well as just getting out into the community and building that transparency, that relationship with their users. So I truly think that if we start with that education, the opportunities are limitless.”
