A national program to bring cybersecurity education into the classroom
Organizations can play a direct and critical role
A recent Forbes report showed that there will be 1 Million open and unfilled cyber security jobs available by the end of 2016. With all this opportunity for the youth of America, the majority of the nation’s high schools and colleges do not introduce or teach cybersecurity skills.
Why? Cybersecurity does not yet have a place in schools’ curricula and is not integrated into key subject areas like computer science, math, technology and economics. In addition knowledge of Cybersecurity careers is very low among career counselors.
Now organizations have a simple and powerful way to sponsor teachers in their local communities to bring cybersecurity into the classroom. The Cyber4Teachers sponsorship funds teachers to complete the Cyber Teacher CSTA Certificate Program -- an online professional development program to enable teachers to connect their classroom to the most in demand STEM career in the world.
