Aloha from Hawaii, I’m back! For 11+ years I wrote the technology column “Click Chick” for the local newspaper, and had to take a hiatus as the print industry went downhill paired with my brush with cancer. I have now returned with this blog as “Cyber Diva.”

I have been in the Information Technology and Cybersecurity world for over 20 years in both the commercial and government realms and will continue to bring you my favorite gadgets in consumer electronics – the latest and greatest, cybersecurity, and some added bonuses. I recently retired from the military, and in addition to being a techie, I enjoy running, hiking, cooking, hanging out with my family and dogs, helping fellow veterans, and as a survivor, taking a stand against domestic violence.

Figuring out the cyber realm can sometimes be daunting, so if you ever have any questions or any topic interests, please reach out to me at and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Alison Young
