Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a comprehensive year-long course geared toward educators teaching high school cybersecurity. With over a hundred and fifty lesson topics and a plethora of activities, the Cybersecurity course provides the rigor and relevance expected for top quality cybersecurity education. Not only does Cybersecurity introduce real-world cybersecurity concepts and skills, it also prepares students to verify their technical know-how through the CompTIA Security+ certification. 

Activities in Cybersecurity are designed for use with a cyber range, a virtual lab environment where students are able to simulate cybersecurity scenarios in a safe, protected online environment as they explore the back end of IT systems used by today’s industries. Activities and labs are portable and applicable across a variety of classroom lab configurations. It does not require any specific cyber range. All activities are "range agnostic."

More than just a course on “how to hack,” Cybersecurity lays a foundation of understanding cyber law and policy, Linux, networking technology basics, risk assessment, cryptography, and a variety of essential cybersecurity tools – all the essential knowledge and skills needed to begin a future in the cyber workforce.
