Reluctant to update your computer or change your passwords? Do you avoid multi-factor authentication? "Ninety percent of cyberattacks are human error," obseves this week's EA Unlocked guest Kyla Guru. She is working to change human behavior and design systems that make the "convenience security trade-off" second nature and as easy as brushing your teeth or locking your car door. 

After attending a NSA GenCyber camp when she was a 14-year-old high school student, Guru discovered her passion for cybersecurity and the importance of educating people about the topic. She is the founder and CEO of Bits N'​ Bytes Cybersecurity Education and a student at Stanford University, where she is studying computer science and international relations. 

Thanks to the generosity of the Clare Foundation STEM Speaker Series, Guru spent the day talking with teachers and students at The Episcopal Academy, and EA Unlocked host Dr. T.J. Locke.

Additonal Guests:

  • EA Math Teacher & Clare Foundation STEM Speaker Coordinator Tracey Motley
  • EA Senior Kate Lamb
  • EA Senior Sydney Richter
