Empowering Educators to Teach Cyber
CYBER.ORG’s goal is to empower educators as they prepare the next generation to succeed in the cyber workforce of tomorrow.
To build a future where the nation’s cybersecurity needs are met by a knowledgeable, skilled, and passionate workforce.
To ensure that every K-12 student gains foundational and technical cybersecurity knowledge and skills.
Empower educators and caregivers with resources and training needed to deliver cyber content to students.
We at HPA are happy to provide access to CYBER.org for all enrolled families with a MS365 account. If you do not yet have a MS365 account please click the link here to request one. After you’ve received and set up your MS365 account, you may use your MS365 school email address to apply for a CYBER.org Range (educator) account.
What is a Cyber Range?
A cloud-based environment capable of running virtual machines with access to the internet, but closed off from any private networks. By launching these machines in a web browser, no additional hardware or software is necessary to practice cybersecurity concepts.
What can you do with the Range?
Teachers will be able to lead their students through labs and allow them to experience cyber attacks in a safe and controlled, virtual environment. All labs in the CYBER.ORG Cybersecurity course can be completed on the CYBER.ORG Range.
Practice Attacking and Defending
Students are able to get hands-on practice using real-world tools with common cyber attacks and learn how to defend against them.
