APS Students Become #CyberAware Experts

While the news brings near-daily reports of compromised data and hacking successes, young students at APS are becoming #CyberAware in how to remain safe and secure online.

Students from Rangeview High School recently attended a “Hack-A-Thon” workshop hosted by Webroot. Webroot is an organization that specializes in cybersecurity and threat intelligence.

These Rangeview Cyber Patriots gained a deeper understanding of crypto theft, wallet devs, and useful tips to protect their online information and prevent cybercrime. 

While the main goal of the workshop was to generate awareness of cybersecurity issues, students were also encouraged to pursue cybersecurity as a potential career.

“We want to inspire the next generation of cybersecurity experts and encourage students to pursue their passions,” said APS College and Career Success Specialist Jarred Frank.

Congratulations are in order for these 13 students who earned the Lifelong Learner Badge, which is part of the APS Digital Badge Program!

Thank you to Webroot for dedicating their time, talents and cybersecurity expertise to make a difference in our students’ lives and the world at large!
