Additional Teacher Resources

The High School Cybersecurity Workshop's mission is to help introduce cybersecurity concepts to the next generation of professionals. Toward that effort we offer additional resources beyond our annual workshop. Currently, classes are only available in parts of Maryland/DC/Virginia.  For questions about courses outside of this area, please email
