    Topic: Gifts for your favorite Cybersecurity Types

    Doug's list:

    1. Yubikeys -- a 2FA device.
    2. RF detectors -- are there spy cameras in your hotel room? There could be? These detectors find RF signals and show you where they are hiding.
    3. VPN subscriptions for phones -- These are vpns that encrypt your traffic on wifi when you are using your phone walking around the world.
    4. Lockpicks (check your local laws). -- everyone loves to pick locks and toool teaches people this fun skill. They sell all kinds of practice equipment and other fun stuff related to picking locks. Try it, it's fun.
    5. Certs/training -- so this is a big ticket item but if you really want to drop some cash and show someone how much you care, well, a gift certificate for a cert (hint hint) or a class, is better than diamonds (which are really just crushed coal) and actually has better resell value in terms of income. Cybrary has a lot of free study courses for certs, freeccna has free ccna training. Etc. Just paying for the cert test is a lot for a lot of students though. S+ is about 399 for the test. You could also buy a subscription to one of the training sites which might be a fun thing. A Learn subscription to is only 15 dollars a month (do we have a discount) so you could get a lot of classes out of that.

    Russ's list:

    1. A VPN solution for many device types. Includes protection for 3 devices with one subscription ($99 per Year).
    2. AmazonBasics 15-Sheet Cross-Cut Paper/ CD/ Credit Card Shredder (Don't forget the lube) ~$100
    3. Tile (never lose your stuff again) $35 for 2
    4. NoMoRobo $24/year
    5. Certs/Training Agree with Doug on this. Udemy has some courses in Cybersecurity for about $15 each in addition to the courses Doug mentions.
