His current mission at Johnny Security Seed is to help individuals and companies protect their information. In this effort free classes are being given to schools and civic organizations about:

  • Security and Privacy (How to protect yourself)
  • The Evolution of Computers (with stories from the space center)
  • An Introduction to Cyber Security (How to build a program)

As a part of this effort, he has begun a series of books to promote an interest in Cyber Security for today’s youth.  The Cyber Security Sam adventures are about a high school freshman who ends up working with the FBI to solve cyber-crime. The stories are made up but they are based on real cyber events. The first book in the series is "Time Out", which is about some timing issues in his smart school. The second book, "The Invisible Man" addresses several issue but focuses on a bank robbery where the main suspect appears to be a ghost. "Rosie I'm Home" addresses some automation issues and scams that are in place today.  "I'm Back" is based on events were the bad guys somehow appear to return to repaired systems.

He is also working on a professional line of books.  The first is for all users of phone, email or messaging. It contains real examples of SCAMs; how to identify them and what to do about them. This is the book "Your Personal Information is at Risk: A Guide for Protecting Yourself".

By the end of 2022 expect the book "Cyber Security Druid Cookbook: Spells and Incantations Necessary to Conjure up an Effective Cyber Security Program".
