The Biden administration has released a National Cybersecurity Strategy to address the increase in cyberattacks targeting K-12 schools.
To improve online safety and build a stronger cybersecurity workforce, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency funded Cyber.org, a cybersecurity workforce development organization, to provide K-12 schools with cybersecurity curricula.
Laurie Salvail, the executive director of Cyber.org, emphasized the importance of teaching cybersecurity skills to K-12 students, even as young as kindergarten, to help prepare them to use technology safely and become active citizens in the future.
Cyber.org has also developed the Cyber.org Range, a virtual environment where students can practice cybersecurity skills safely.
