Feedback form is now closed.
This session is designed to engage teachers from a wide variety of disciplines, not just those in the STEM fields. Cybersecurity is a skill and content area that should be covered in every subject at every level of K-12.

Utilizing the CIA triad, teachers will learn basic foundational cybersecurity concepts and apply them to topics including social engineering, social media, public Wi-Fi, and E-commerce. Concepts covered include attack surface, threat/risks, vulnerabilities, controls, and impacts. The session will end by asking teachers how they can envision applying the concepts to their own classrooms to help students be more cognizant of online activity.
