Abstract

Computer and Internet safety for students continues to be an ongoing issue due to the lack of knowledge as well as the difficulty to maintain up to date information in a field of rapid technological development Moreover, due to curricular constraints, cybersecurity is often bundled with other topics (such as general computing technology) and is therefore not properly addressed in current High School courses In this paper, we present a high school level curriculum on cybersecurity which can be offered at school districts as a computer science elective course The course is meant to be informative, “real-world” related, and project based The purpose of posing this curriculum is to improve people's awareness in their technology usage in order to, eventually, mold a society into one which contains fewer incidents of data loss, stolen identities, breached networks, and generally cybercrime As a case example, the curriculum is aligned with a state’s education technology standards The complete unit description is available online
