Title

INNOVATE Cyber

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

This experience was different from a traditional classroom setting because the primary focus of our INNOVATE Cyber project was to create a prototype solution around a cyber security related issue while utilizing the human centered design thinking method. Our prototype focused on creating a service for small businesses throughout Hampton Roads to address their unique cybersecurity challenges and promoting cyber’s best practices. Design thinking allowed our team to push outside of our comfort zones to reimagine an innovative solution. I realized that developing a meaningful solution took longer than expected and was pleased to discover our outcome really surpassed my expectations when I first started out. This experience has allowed me to think creatively and learn how to develop a unique solution while perfecting it with the help of our stakeholders. I learned how to voice my opinion, develop my leadership skills, take initiative, grow my professional network, and understand the growing need for cybersecurity experts. I would recommend this experience because today’s world is full of technology where businesses, companies, and individual users need to be protected by strong, innovative, cybersecurity professionals. The program will allow you to expand your ideas, work with a diverse group of people from different backgrounds and apply cybersecurity knowledge to the real world.
