03 Mar The Phi Beta Cyber Society
Phi Beta Cyber cybersecurity experts with U.S. high schools. Volunteer
The Phi Beta Cyber Society is a grassroots movement launched by Steve Morgan.
We are a volunteer corps of experienced women and men who have devoted our careers to cyber defending and protecting the United States and its citizens, businesses, educational institutions, and organizations of all types.
Phi Beta Cyber volunteers generally have high academic achievement in computer sciences, industry certifications, and many years of government and / or commercial sector cyber defense experience (usually 15+ years). Some volunteers have published works, patents, and relevant accomplishments.
Our exclusive focus is on informing U.S. high school students about cybersecurity, higher education programs, and career opportunities in the field. Phi Beta Cyber volunteers pledge to speak at local high schools — in order to raise awareness around cybercrime, cyberwarfare, and the importance of cyber defense. The goal is to help generate more of our nation’s future cyber fighters.
There are no fees, dues or profit motives in connection with The Phi Beta Cyber Society — and we are not an “honorary society.”
Cybercrime Radio: What Is The Phi Beta Cyber Society?
Steve Morgan explains our mission
A pledge to U.S. high schools and their students.
There are two conditions for volunteers to get involved with The Phi Beta Cyber Society. First, they must be an expert in the cybersecurity field with the credentials and work history to prove it — sufficient to lend proper experience to the cause. Second, they must pledge to accept invitations to speak with students at local high schools.
If you’re a principal, guidance counselor, or administrator at a U.S. high school, then we encourage you to invite a Phi Beta Cyber volunteer to speak with your students. This can be done as a special event, as part of a career day, or just an informal talk with a group of students. There is no cost to your school.
An unbiased cybersecurity expert with years of industry experience is the best person to speak with your students. They can provide the facts, figures, and resources that parents need — to contemplate a potential future in cyber. Our volunteers are not paid for their involvement in The Phi Beta Cyber Society, or for visiting with your students.
The cybersecurity field offers excellent career opportunities for young people to learn, grow, serve and protect. The first step is for them to understand what it’s all about. Our volunteers break it down to help students (and their parents) become well informed on cyber, post-high school educational options, and what types of careers may await them.

Get involved and support The Phi Beta Cyber Society movement.
We invite companies, organizations, educational institutions, and the media to support the Phi Beta Cyber movement. By doing so, you will salute the U.S. women and men in cyber who are so generously volunteering their time to help our high school students.
The quickest and easiest way to help is by openly declaring your support for The Phi Beta Cyber Society and displaying our logo where potential new volunteers, U.S high school officials, and the media can see it. We grant permission for anyone to use the logo in support of our mission. The low-res web friendly version appears at the top of this page (we also have a white on black version). To request a high-res .eps version of the logo for use in printed materials, contact us here.
We welcome sponsors, volunteers, content, and ideas. Tell us what you’re thinking.
