Encountering cyber problems in real life can be scary. But with Amanita, the main character in the NCF's free cybersecurity computer game series, finding and fixing problems can be fun! Join us for this #CyberChats Zoom webinar and get a sneak peek of our sequel game, "Amanita Whitehat and the Mayhem at Mallory Middle." You'll meet the game developers (Rick and Rob), ask them questions about game design and cybersecurity, submit your suggestions, and even apply to play test the game.
