We are taking a public health approach to cyber-security. Cyber Clinics follow a “triage, treat, and train” methodology where trained “Cyber-Medics” provide personalized cyber-security guidance. The main objective of a Cyber Clinic is to teach people valuable techniques in cyber self-defense.
Cyber Clinics provide a mutually beneficial value proposition; the “patients” learn how to improve their cyber self-defense, and student cyber-medics apply their cybersecurity knowledge and develop practical experience.
