Intro To Cybersecurity

Grades 11-12 (URI college credit available for students)

URI has partnered with Project Lead The Way (PLTW) to provide 4 URI credits for the PLTW Cybersecurity course.

The PLTW Cybersecurity course introduces the tools and concepts of cybersecurity and encourages students to create solutions that allow people to share computing resources while protecting privacy. Nationally, computational resources are vulnerable and frequently attacked; in Cybersecurity, students solve problems by understanding and closing these vulnerabilities.

This course raises students’ knowledge of and commitment to ethical computing behavior. It also aims to develop students’ skills as consumers, friends, citizens, and employees who can effectively contribute to communities with a dependable cyber-infrastructure that moves and processes information safely.
