The Biden-Harris Administration’s National Cyber Workforce and Education Strategy is a crucial step toward addressing the nation’s cybersecurity workforce challenges and illustrates the government’s commitment to cultivating the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. CYBER.ORG has joined forces with the White House to support the strategy by pledging to expand K-12 cybersecurity education programming to reach more K-12 students nationwide.

Organization pledges to increase K-12 cyber education access to 6 million students nationwide in collaboration with CISA.
In collaboration with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) through the Cybersecurity Education and Training Assistance Program (CETAP) grant, we are proud to commit to the following initiatives across all 50 states in the next five years:
- Develop 1,300 cybersecurity lessons, activities, competitions, games, and career resources
- Engage with 50,000 educators and caregivers and provide cybersecurity content to teach students
- Impact over 6 million students through teachers and caregivers
- Host 1,250 cybersecurity training events impacting 32,500 educators and caregivers
CYBER.ORG will continue to partner with the Biden-Harris Administration and CISA to bolster the U.S. cyber workforce, including the launch of the Investing in America workforce roadshow, which kicked off in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the upcoming year, CYBER.ORG plans to contribute to the enhancement of cybersecurity education for Nevadans by attending the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education Conference, in addition to efforts to expand cybersecurity resources nationwide.
By providing accessible, no-cost cybersecurity resources and curriculum to educators, caregivers, and students nationwide, CYBER.ORG is dedicated to solving the 660,000 U.S cybersecurity workforce shortage.
