Teach kids about cyberbullying

Are you ready for another cyber literacy story? Today we’re talking about the ugly duckling story… with a twist! This is a tale about 3 ducklings and cyberbullying. Once upon a time, there lived three “ugly” ducklings in three different locations in the world.  One of the ducklings lived in the country – he liked to play near an old farmhouse, and he enjoyed taking pictures of beautiful nature with his phone camera. He would look up interesting nature facts on his computer to learn about the world around him. The second duckling lived in the city – she loved hopping, skipping, and jumping outside, and making phone videos of herself having cool adventures exploring the world around her. She shared […]

3 things you can do to protect seniors online and in person

When I was 5 years old, we lived in a desert area, with only 3 houses around us. The closest house was about a mile away and our neighbors Aura, her baby daughter and her husband lived in this house. A bit further was a family of 12 children with many dogs and the last house was a very small shack where Mr. Urbano was living by himself. Mr. Urbano was in his late 70’s and he was the smartest person I had ever met. He always had an answer for my questions, his heart was full of love, and he was very patient even though I asked lots of questions when my mom and I visited our neighbors. Most of […]

How the Internet is like the Deep Blue Ocean

Feb 27, 2021 | 0 Comments
The Internet, like the ocean, has many layers of wondrous, and dangerous, things.

Have you ever been to the ocean? What was your experience like? I used to be terrified of the open water. I was afraid of drowning, and encountering dangerous elements that could put my safety at risk. It was only until later on in my adult life that I learned that the ocean is vast and full of beautiful things to enjoy! I love scuba diving, swimming, and exploring the gorgeous sea life.    Oceanographers have divided the ocean into three layers, categorized by density, temperature, and the amount of light in each one. Here are the three layers of the ocean: The surface ocean or epipelagic zone: This layer is warmer and refers to the top 660 feet of the ocean […]

Cybersecurity Awareness - Happily Ever Cyber - Sandra Estok

Last year, I opened my email, and there was an inquiry from someone in Caterpillar stating they were searching for a keynote speaker for their annual celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness in October.  Right away my cybersecurity brain kicked in and I started to validate if the email was real and the person existed. I searched social media channels, did a google search and also went on the company website and concluded that this was a legitimate request. They found me because my team has been working to optimize our website SEO.  I had my first meeting with them and a few weeks later I got selected as Caterpillar Keynote speaker for two sessions on “Connecting, Protecting and Caring about your Cyber […]

Is A Scammer Preventing You From Finding True Love?

what does true love mean to you

What does true LOVE mean to you? The relationship I have with my husband, Ricardo, is my definition of true love. He encourages me to be a better person, supports me in my dreams and goals, and he “gets” me. Even if you aren’t married, you can have a soulmate, someone who understands you and helps you be the best version of yourself. However, it can be so easy to get caught up in a relationship that can only be described as a SCAM. Before I got married to my husband, I was in a very conflictive relationship. It was completely TOXIC. I know now he was NOT the person for me for many reasons. When I remember being in that relationship […]

clean your home and your devices - happily ever cyber - sandra estok

When we clean, we open space for something new and fresh to come into our lives. This week is the celebration of Clean Out Your Computer Day, and it is the perfect time to remove the old files, photos, emails, and other things from last year that you don’t need anymore! I started this year by telling myself to start making “intentional” actions. I set many intentions to start 2021 off right – one of them is cleaning my whole house, my office, my car and also my technology.  While doing these cleaning activities, it is also a great time for me to clear my mind and get rid of thoughts that are not serving me anymore. I choose listening to […]
