To ensure comprehensive cybersecurity education, K-12 educators should cover fundamental topics including privacy, cyberbullying, phishing scams, the significance of strong passwords, identity theft and the role of artificial intelligence.

EdTech reports that cybersecurity education can expose students to career opportunities and set them on a promising path for their future. Hands-on experiences through internships or mentorship programs further nurture curiosity and passion for this sought-after profession.

There are more than 572,000 cybersecurity job vacancies in the U.S., according to data from CyberSeek, a collaboration between Lightcast, NICE, and CompTIA. Cybersecurity Ventures estimated that there were 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally in 2023.

Many school districts have started IT internship and mentorship programs for their students as after-school or summer classes to help enrich interest. Nurturing cybersecurity awareness among students not only ensures their safety in the digital realm but also lays the foundation for future leaders capable of managing evolving cyberthreats.

EdTech covers numerous in-person and online interactive programs, videos, and games geared to educating K-12 students on cybersecurity.
