Dr. Phyllis Schneck, Deputy Under-Secretary of Cybersecurity for the US Department of Homeland Security speaking at the University of West Florida.

Remember when you got your first computer and had to make up a password for the first time? That was your introduction to the world of cybersecurity. That world has gotten a lot larger. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to a homeland security official about cybersecurity in and out of schools.

We’ll also hear about NY State’s trans gender bathroom policy…or lack thereof, find out if the water in the state’s schools is safe to drink…and spend an academic minute longing for your smart phone.
