Cybersecurity Virtual Workshop for WNY Teachers: August 4-7
Buffalo State College will virtually host a four-day cybersecurity workshop, sponsored by Google, for in-service secondary school teachers of Western New York from Tuesday, August 4, to Friday, August 7, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The goals of the workshop are increasing interest in cybersecurity careers and diversity in the cybersecurity workforce of the nation, helping secondary school students understand correct and safe online behavior and becoming good digital citizens, and improving teaching methods for the delivery of cybersecurity content in K–12 curricula. The workshop will present various topics in the area of cybersecurity, including data security, cyber ethics, ethical hacking, social engineering, cryptography, web security, the Internet of things, Python programming, Raspberry Pi, and cybersecurity career awareness.
Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to direct their talents in this area is critical to the future of our country's national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives. If you know of any high school mathematics, science, or technology teachers who might be interested in attending, please encourage them to visit the CS4HS website and register for the free virtual cybersecurity workshop.
