Five Grace Academy teachers attended the Cybersecurity Summer Institute at Hagerstown Community College in early July. Nathan Behe, Tessa Cox, Ashley Evans, Penny Groves and Lauren Henry took advantage of the opportunity to learn about the bigger picture of cybersecurity and the need for all to be better educated on an issue that is now a national concern. The teachers learned about risk assessment and determining the level of security within businesses. Social engineering, issues of ethical hacking and types of potential threatening attacks were among the subjects discussed at the four-day course.  “As citizens, we are all responsible for educating ourselves about the needed security in our 'cyber world' to protect ourselves against identity theft and other computer-related threats,” said Evans, education technology specialist at the private Christian school  west of Hagerstown.
