More About Me
“How does that work?!?!” has always been a driving force in my life. From the Commodore 64 and Lanier Word Processor, to deconstructing appliances, changing my own spark plugs and oil in my car, to my very first work PC with two floppy drives (who remembers those?!?), technology has always been of interest to me.
As the role of technology in my life has evolved over time, in a wide variety of jobs, one constant is that I have always found myself teaching others how to use their computers. When I joined the Mobile Area Free Net in 1995, I toured Mobile organizations with a talk: “What is the Internet and How Does it Work?” Working at MAFN, I started to appreciate the power (and potential danger) of widespread Internet access to homes and businesses, and a year later I left to form my own company, The Net Effect, LLC.
Information security has been the company’s focus from the beginning, and teaching security awareness has been one of my primary roles. Over the past decade, my teaching has expanded to include public speaking at professional conferences, corporate/executive training and hosting my own workshops. Thanks to COVID-19, I’m now hosting work(fromhome)shops on a regular basis.
Technology is a powerful force in our lives, and I believe it is critical for people to understand “How does that work?” – particularly when it comes to new technology such as “smart” devices. It is difficult, if not impossible, to understand and manage the risks in using technology without this knowledge.
I am truly passionate about education, and I love teaching people “How does that work?” One of my greatest joys is watching the facial expressions of people in an audience who suddenly “get it.”

"Great educator, a lot of information covered."
"The presentation by The Net Effect's Glenda Snodgrass to our organization's annual meeting was the absolute best continuing education presentation at the meeting. This is not mere hyperbole. I had the opportunity to introduce Ms. Snodgrass and observe the entirety of her presentation. She was interesting and engaging. The subject was timely, and was of critical importance to every attendee. She spoke for an hour, and the group would have continued asking her questions if she had stayed for three hours. No one left the presentation. Afterward, several - more than ten - attendees sought me out to make sure I knew that they wanted her to come back next year for the annual meeting. I would recommend Ms. Snodgrass to any organization."
