Featured on ABC NBC CW Telemundo Sandra Estok, CEO and Founder of Way2Protect | Happily Ever Cyber!

Welcome!

I believe that we can change the way cybersecurity is perceived by sharing real, responsible, and respectful stories to teach and inspire others to live Happily Ever Cyber!™

We are looking forward to hearing your Cyber Story!

Story Submission Guidelines

Your story may be about you, your family, or your business. You can submit more than one story.

We recommend that you proofread and double-check spelling prior to submitting.

Since our stories are publicly viewable, we encourage you to think about the privacy of any persons you may mention in your story.

Do tell your story in your own perspective, avoiding assumptions, using respectful language, and free of inappropriate details that may be too intimate, graphic, or embarrassing for others.

Refrain from using words that have been historically known to be demeaning with people with any kind of disabilities, as well as from any language that can imply discrimination of any type.

If you cite research or statistics, please provide a valid link to the source.

Remember that the purpose of your Cyber Story is to educate, inspire, not merely to entertain.
