Authored by Chase Cunningham and Heather Dahl, who both work for cybersecurity consulting firms, “The Cynja: Volume 1” aims to introduce children to the world of cybersecurity and teach them how to protect their computers through the awesomeness of comics!
Hidden deep inside our planet’s virtual world, hiding in the darkened cyber alleys of our digital neighborhoods, a new generation of bad guys has risen. Zombies, worms, botnets – all threaten our happiness and future. But there is hope. A lone warrior battles this new sinister cyber evil. He is the Cynsei.
The Cynsei is trying to keep us safe.
But the guardian of all things noble in cyberspace cannot fight alone. His enemies are too numerous. If the Internet is to escape falling into darkness, the Cynsei needs help. But who would be brave enough to travel into the depths of malicious networks?

I have purchased Volume 1 and the Field Instruction Manual three times. This series teaches so much about internet safety that parents and teachers will also learn from it when sharing it with their children. Great images and messages. Thank you for sharing.
