About the Speaker
Dr. Melissa Dark has worked in cybersecurity education and workforce development for the past 20 years. Her early work in cybersecurity education focused on the graduate level and has progressively grown down to community college, and now high school, in response to two needs: robust cybersecurity literacy among all cybercitizens and closing the cybersecurity workforce gap. In 2015, she founded DARK Enterprises, Inc., a non-profit which advances the mission of developing, supporting, and stewarding cybersecurity education initiatives in the United States.
