Doing it All: What Whitney Lee Has Accomplished Since Attending Our Private Academy

Driven by her passion for cybersecurity and technology, 28-year-old Whitney Lee is both a founder and an attorney, going on to become an associate at Morrison & Foerster LLP after graduating from Columbia Law School. In her practice as an attorney, one of her areas of focus is crisis management and incident response, particularly with regard to cybercrime. Whitney Lee’s non-profit organization, CYREIN, provides educational services and pro-bono crisis management consulting for those who have been targeted by crimes related to cyber-harassment and cyberstalking. 

In lieu of her achievements, Whitney Lee has attributed her interest in cybersecurity and privacy to the time she spent at our private academy. The exposure she had to The U.S. Air Force led her to begin exploring technology and cyber – subjects she started to consider more deeply during her time at Harvard University. Using the inspiration she gained to become a successful advocate for victims of cybercrimes, Whitney Lee shows us all what can be accomplished through the Power of Rise at R-MA.
