More Cybersecurity Awareness: Webinars, symposium, contest, and more

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is rolling on and I wanted to share some updates, from a free cybersecurity webinar series to a one-day symposium and a YouTube video contest (with great prizes, of course).

Turkish Delight

So, back in harness.

Before I left, I was interviewed by a Turkish security site. It
