Kyla Guru Biography

Kyla Guru is 21 years old and already reimagining the future of cybersecurity.

When she was 14 years old, Guru discovered her passion for human-centered security, discovering that 90% of cyberattacks were due to human error. To combat this, Guru founded Bits N’ Bytes Cybersecurity Education Corp (BNBCE), an international 501(c)(3) that distributes curriculum to schools and sustains partnerships with corporations like Facebook and IBM, and educational platforms to increase training/awareness in cybersecurity and privacy. Guru has championed her message for empowering individuals in cyber on national/international stages including TEDxChicago, NIST’s NICE Conference, RSAC-USA and Singapore 2019.

She is also the co-founder of GirlCon Tech, an international conference that unites industry professionals and students annually to discuss bridging the gender gap. For her impact-driven work, Guru has been honored as Crain Chicago’s Top 50 in Tech, a Stanford She++ fellow, a 2018 Global Teen Leader, and a 2019 Harvard Book Prize Award winner. Guru is also a student at Stanford University studying Computer Science and International Security.

Kyla Guru Speaking Topics

Protecting Yourself Online in an Era of Cyber-Insecurity

Kyla will teach about protecting yourself, your assets, and your company online in an era of "Cyber-Insecurity,” giving tips and resources to navigate cybersecurity and privacy in the face of the advancing cybersecurity threat landscape. Kyla has spoken to parents about the best practices to protect children online and can speak about threat actors, their motivations, and how vulnerable demographics are targeted not only based on age, but also based on gender and race. In this, for parents, she will share tips on how to start the conversation about your child’s online safety rules and digital citizenship at the dinner table.

International Security & Threat Intelligence

Sharing insights from her time at CISA and Apple Security Operations, Kyla will break down the international threat landscape by providing an in-depth analysis of the biggest players affecting the US. She will enrich the session with case-study examples and dive into motives and threats that could directly affect your business vertical. As Kyla does in every session, she will provide recommendations for strengthening security posture and skating ahead of the puck against the adversaries.

The Role of AI in Cybersecurity

In the age of ChatGPT and generative AI models, Artificial Intelligence can now be used as our greatest tool to detect anomalistic behavior in dynamic threat environments--but it can also be our most intelligent adversary. Kyla will speak to the implications of AI to launch disinformation campaigns, the rise of deepfake technology (and its disproportionate impact on women and marginalized populations), and the potential use of AI for threat emulation, penetration-testing/offensive hacking, and reconnaissance.

Engaging Generation Z and Generation Alpha in Cybersecurity and Privacy: Shifting Representation, Building Effective Programs, and Increasing Retention in Security

Kyla uses her unique perspective of going through the education system to talk about what she sees for the future of cybersecurity education for youth, and, of course, strategies on how your organization can make radical change in securing the pipeline and our future. For educators, Kyla will share a “toolkit” for sparking interdisciplinary conversation about cybersecurity and privacy in your classroom, and fostering the ongoing culture of ethics and accountability that comes with the conversation. Kyla will focus on why cybersecurity is such a high-impact area and how “gen-zennials” are well fit to meet future cybersecurity workforce needs.
