Webinar Series on Teaching Cybersecurity in CSP (or Any CS Class) - 5/19, 5/26, 6/2

The "Teaching Security" lessons introduce the foundational ideas of cybersecurity through threat modeling and the human-centered nature of authentication.

Join the Teaching Security team for a webinar mini-series:

Teaching Cybersecurity in CSP: Introducing the Security Mindset

Tuesdays, May 19, May 26, and June 2, 2020
7:00 p.m. EDT / 4:00 p.m. PDT

This interactive web workshop is for CS educators at all levels; no previous cybersecurity experience is required. While our lessons were designed to meet the AP CSP cybersecurity learning objectives , they are appropriate for any high school computer science class or program (including dedicated cybersecurity classes).

Participants will learn how to begin developing the “security mindset” by teaching students a simplified version of threat modeling (our introductory lesson). We will also introduce lessons on authentication and social engineering. In addition, the workshop will provide opportunities for attendees to share their own strategies.

Originally planned as a workshop at SIGCSE 2020 (but cancelled due to COVID-19).

Presenters: Buffie Holley (Albemarle High School) and Dan Garcia (University of California, Berkeley)
