"Silver Hats" is the new term, coined by GRECTECH, that identifies individuals over the age of 60 that are involved in the cybersecurity education and sharing program.  In essence, these individuals learn cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats and learn how to prevent these threats.  Besides the learning phase, these individuals share with others their cybersecurity knowledge.  By sharing their knowledge with generations either above or below them (older and younger), they help to prevent the "bad actors" otherwise known as "black hats" from using invasive (and evasive) techniques to steal personal information from computers.  Look to this page for videos and links to educational resources.  If you have children that you feel need to know more about the cybersecurity threats, GRECTECH is also a certified volunteer for the "safe and secure online" program sponsored by ISC2 (
