At the end of the interview, Cobb ran Dan and Heather through a cybersecurity quiz with $100 per question on the line. Spoiler Alert, the dynamic anchor duo went 4 for 4, sending $400 on its way to the National Cyber Security Alliance, the nation's leading cybersecurity non-profit and the group in charge of National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
