Cyber Chunks

Your Bite-Sized Online Security Guide.

Cyber Chunks are fun, educational monthly cyber hygiene booklets made especially for individuals who have an online presence but are not tech-savvy. Each booklet teaches readers about a specific aspect, or “chunk” of cybersecurity, such as Phishing, Password Management, Social Media Safety, etc. You can sign yourself or a loved one up (such as parent) through a simple and secure online portal. Every Chunk makes its topic as approachable as possible by using simple language, analogies, visuals, and real-life examples.

Cyber Chunks can also directly help readers improve their cyber hygiene by including information about emerging threats, practical tips, tutorials, and interactive self-assessment.

For readers who are comfortable using them, Chunks will include occasional QR codes linking to explanatory videos hosted on the Cyber Chunks website.
