Downloadable versions of the lessons are available via the CLARK cybersecurity curriculum library with a free account.

Additional Cybersecurity Curriculum Resource - AP CSP: Cybersecurity

AP CSP: Cybersecurity is an Advanced Placement course that merges the foundational concepts of computer science and cybersecurity into an introductory curriculum. The course was developed by the NCyTE Center in partnership with CodeHS, and is endorsed by the College Board.

The AP Computer Science Principles: Cybersecurity curriculum is accessible on the CodeHS platform. High school teachers can access it through a free teacher account.

The material in the Cybersecurity Concept Lessons and AP CSP: Cybersecurity are based upon work supported by the NCyTE Center and the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1548315, Catalyzing Computing and Cybersecurity in Community Colleges (C5).
