Intro Text

This 90-minute virtual workshop serves as an introduction to the Linux command line and how to use a cyber range for educators preparing to teach Cybersecurity. Linux is the most widely utilized operating system in the cybersecurity world. The free, open-source nature of this operating system ensures security experts have a stable platform to work from. Linux 101 serves as the initial starting point for navigating the Linux operating system and implementing cybersecurity in your classroom.

Topics covered include the following:

- Intro to a Cyber Range

- Linux Filesystem (cd, ls, pwd)

- Navigating Linux Files (cat, head, tail, wc, mv, cp)

This workshop will be led by subject matter experts from the CYBER.ORG. Zoom links will be emailed before the webinar begins.

Prerequisites & Participant Requirements: Due to grant funding restrictions, this workshop is only open to K-12 educators in the US. No prior knowledge of cybersecurity is required.

Participants will receive access to online curriculum materials as well as a temporary log-in to the U.S. Cyber Range. We recommend having two screens available if possible: one for the Zoom meeting (this can be a tablet or a desktop/laptop) and one for the cyber range (must be a desktop or laptop).
