GenCyber – Security Awareness for Secondary Education Teachers

The GenCyber workshop enables participants to understand security procedures, practices, and threats regardless of their knowledge level in IT/CS. The goal of this non-residential program is to help participants understand the dangers that come with using Internet, social media, and smart devices and increase their knowledge of system vulnerabilities, threats, attacks, and protections.

Objectives:

The GenCyber program at Boise State University is designed for secondary education teachers in Southwest Idaho and the Boise area to:

  • create local cyber security awareness
  • build a community of practice to promote cyber security for everyone
  • design, develop, implement, and evaluate lesson plans for teachers in the area of security and privacy
  • provide cyber security resources and make them accessible to the community.
