We’re completely chuffed to announce that the first school to participate in Schooled In Security is Wyoming High School in Wyoming Ohio, just 20 minutes north of the city of Cincinnati.

As a reminder, Schooled In Security is only the biggest national survey of adult and teen opinions on cybersecurity and privacy, led and conducted by high school students across the country, and with a hidden agenda to use this massive school project to show teens how fun a career in cybersecurity or privacy can be.

Over the last 72 hours a group of more than 200 students at the school kicked off the program by completing the survey themselves and offering their feedback, before we invite the broader student and staff population to participate and eventually out into the Wyoming community and beyond.

We plan to recognize these pioneering students by inviting them to share their results and impressions with other students at TechOlympics in Cincinnati at the end of February 2019.

TechOlympics is run by our great partner INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati, and proudly describes itself as the nation’s biggest student-run technology conference. We plan to announce some more schools shortly, and hope to announce up to a dozen new participating schools at TechOlympics.

Wyoming High School has more than 1,300 students, was ranked the 2nd best Ohio high school by US News in 2017, and has been ranked as one of the top high schools in the nation by the Washington Post and Newsweek.

And our expectation is that as more schools and communities get involved, the benefits could go far beyond a survey.

We're delighted to have the support and guidance of some world-class security and privacy experts, including:

  • Michael Fillios, founder of IT Ally and former Fifth Third CIO.

  • Deneen DiFiore, Global Chief Information & Product Security Officer for GE Aviation.

  • Gary Warzala, former CISO for Fifth Third Bank. PNC and Visa.

  • Vince Scott, Cyber Security Director for PwC.

Stay tuned as we announce some more great security and privacy leaders who have volunteered to help guide this new generation of champions.

Onward and upward!
