November 6, 2023 |

KANSAS CITY, Mo. BARR Advisory has teamed up with a cohort of leading cybersecurity and technology solutions firms to release a collection of free resources aimed at educating middle and high school students about cybersecurity and internet safety.

The new resources are designed to help educators spark thoughtful conversations with students in grades six through twelve about topics including digital citizenship, social media safety, and careers in cybersecurity and technology. 

The full package includes more than two hours of video interviews with members of the BARR Advisory team as well as security and technology experts from organizations including Quickbase, Tessian, Mission Cloud, MedStack, Broadleaf Commerce, Drata, and Hive Systems.

The package also includes a downloadable teachers’ guide with key takeaways and talking points to help further the conversation and inspire students to take action to protect their personal data online.

“For students in this age group who are just beginning to establish their independence online, understanding why and how to take control of their digital footprint is crucial,” said Devin Olsen, a former educator and current associate consultant at BARR Advisory who is featured in the video series. 

“For teachers, these resources provide the perfect jumping-off point to get students talking about how to make smart decisions online,” Olsen adds.
