Another important subject in cyber is data and personal information security. It is crucial that club members use the information and cyber tools responsibly and ethically. Each club member (and parent for members under 18 years old) should be required to complete a member agreement acknowledging that they understand the need for ethical and legal behavior. If your school or organization already has this type of document, you should use that form. Otherwise the form below can be used for this purpose or edited as needed for each club.
