ABSTRACT: This AFSecurity Seminar presents the US GenCyber and the Norwegian CyberSmart Programs for cyber-security education in high school.
The US GenCyber Program is an NSA-funded one-week intensive summer program for a cohort of 30 teachers in high school, followed by a sustained collaboration which takes place via an online community and resource repository for use during the following academic year and beyond. The GenCyber program at the University of Tulsa focuses on preparing teachers in high school to help their students understand correct and safe on-line behavior, to increase diversity and interest in cyber security, and to increase awareness about careers in the cyber-security workforce in USA.
The Norwegian CyberSmart Pilot Program is a collaboration between NSM, NVE, UIO, NTNU, NorSis and Godalen vgs, Rogaland Fylkeskommune. The CyberSmart pilot project, which has been operating since 2018 with funding from NVE, gives knowledge and skills to teachers in high school in Norway, so that they can integrate cybersecurity in their classes in high school. The CyberSmart pilot project aims to fulfill one of the major goals of the Norwegian Government's National Strategy for Digital Security published on 30.01.2019, namely to make cyber security a component of general education in Norway.
