GenCyber will host teachers and students in grades K-12 across America. Both NSA and NSF are excited to provide participants new cybersecurity awareness techniques in a town near you. The program will offer camps in more than 35 new locations in 2017.

Constantly growing and changing cyber threats in today’s digital world have dramatically expanded the demand for cybersecurity experts in both the public and private sectors of our nation.

The GenCyber program enlists both public and private partners to assist in the mission of inspiring and growing the next generation of cyber warriors and security experts.

“We live in an online world and cybersecurity impacts everyone. The GenCyber program introduces students and teachers to the fundamentals of cybersecurity and the essentials of online safety. Over the last three years, we have reached thousands of K-12 students and teachers who may have otherwise missed the opportunity to learn about cybersecurity. GenCyber is impacting lives and increasing the number of students interested in pursuing cybersecurity studies and ultimately joining the cybersecurity workforce of the future,” said Tina Ladabouche, GenCyber Program Manager.
