Cybersecurity Club

Victoria and Christopher are both interested in Cybersecurity and found some of their other classmates were too. So they approached Ms. Brown, the computer instructor, with the idea of  starting an official “Cybersecurity” Club.   Ms. Brown encouraged them to write a mission summary for the club, including what the club will do and how often they will meet.

 

In your first step, Victoria and Chris would appreciate your help with doing a little research.
