The NCyTE Center is hosting a new teaching resource for educators to incorporate into their classes: online interactive lessons addressing topics ranging from the framework of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to the basics of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and digital certificates.

The 33 lessons are designed to help students grasp difficult concepts by interacting with the content, navigating through pages, selecting options, completing activities, and answering questions. Self-assessments are often provided, either at the end of the lesson or on a separate web page.

Lessons are organized into six categories: cybersecurity concepts, cyber attacks and vulnerabilities, code injection attacks, cryptography, networking, and CMMC.

The interactive lessons have been developed through funding from National Science Foundation grants to Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey, and Whatcom Community College.

An introduction to the collection of lessons was included in the March 19 Member Webinar. Representatives of NCyTE member institutions can log in to their website accounts and watch a video of the webinar online.
