Roadmap for Teaching Cybersecurity Concepts

The academic unit of the nonprofit Cyber Innovation Center has released a first-of-its-kind roadmap for K–12 cybersecurity learning. The K–12 cybersecurity learning standards are an effort to align criteria nationwide and support the development of a strong, diverse talent pipeline in the high-demand STEM fields. The optional standards are built around the themes representing the three fundamental areas of cybersecurity education: computing systems, digital citizenship, and security. Each area covers relevant topics, such as the Internet of Things and threat actors. Each core concept includes subconcepts and topics, with standards arranged by grade bands that define understandings for K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12. The document also includes eight approaches to implementation for teachers, school districts, state departments of education, and informal education partners. States will have the option of adopting the standards ahead of the 2022–23 school year.
