  • This Introduction to Cybersecurity introduces students to the principles of cybersecurity and invites them to think critically about the need for and responsibility of keeping data and systems safe. Students will gain knowledge and work with existing cybersecurity problems and solutions. It is our belief that providing these Guidelines will inspire curriculum providers, teachers, and industry to create curriculum attractive to high school students, some of whom we hope will pursue a profession in cybersecurity. Perhaps more important than providing qualified individuals for the workforce is the development of thinkers with a cybersecurity mindset that can enhance whichever profession they choose to pursue.

  • The “Cybersecurity Labs and Resources Knowledge-base” (CLARK) provides a “one-stop access” to assured quality cybersecurity curriculum addressing topics such as forensics, adversarial thinking, secure coding, SCADA security, and others. It is a living library of cybersecurity curriculum, and a community of cybersecurity educators committed to sustaining it.

  • The NCMF hosts quarterly educational programs, as well as an annual Membership Meeting & Symposium featuring guest speakers, panel discussions, and a keynote address.

In addition, we strive to promote the educational programs of related organizations.

  • The NCMF's Cyber Center for Education and Innovation (CCEI) co-sponsors Cybersecurity Events with the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC), as well as other community partners.
