Course Title: Cyber Security Subject: Mathematics Grade Level(s): 10-12Synopsis of Curriculum
Cyber security is an increasingly in-demand field of Computer Science. In this course, we will look at the major ideas in the fields of cybersecurity or information assurance. The course design addresses the fundamental implications of technology, the history of securing information and the relationship to the evolution of technology, and the need to securely transmit and store information. This is not a “hacking” class but we are looking at the ways computers, programs, networks, and people, are exploited by hackers, and what we can do to prevent or minimize the damage caused by bad actors. (Computer programming skills are not the focus of this class).
