Vail Christian High School to participate in Project Lead the Way cybersecurity program
August 26, 2018 / vaildaily
Vail Christian High School has been designated as one of 32 schools across the nation to offer a new program in cybersecurity through Project Lead the Way. Project Lead the Way is piloting this Computer Science Pathway course for the first time this fall because cybersecurity is a threatening national security issue that affects everyone in personal ways. Personal information of almost half of the nation's adults — 110 million Americans — was hacked in a 12-month period according to a survey released in May of 2014 by the Ponemon Institute, sponsored by IBM. Businesses across sectors are all grappling with how to protect their customers and employees. Stakeholders in the financial services industry report that cyber risk is a top concern, even above geopolitical risks and impacts of new regulations.
