September 14, 2020 | CYBER.ORG announced an initiative to develop K–12 learning standards in the field of cybersecurity for use by states and districts, with McREL International facilitating the work. Also participating are multiple universities, companies, and government agencies.

“These standards will provide educators with a roadmap that will not only introduce fundamental concepts of cybersecurity to all students, but will also increase the availability of more advanced cybersecurity education opportunities for students that will prepare them to enter the workforce or to expand their study in college,” said Kevin Nolten, director of academic research for CYBER.ORG, which was formerly known as the  National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center.
