Given the demand for Cybersecurity workforce, the goal of the RUSecure project at Radford University is to increase the pipeline of students who plan to pursue Computer Science/IT as a major with Cybersecurity as their focus. We identified a variety of challenges to the introduction of Cybersecurity topics in high school including lack of qualified teachers, limited number of students motivated to study IT topics, large number of prerequisite topics and scarcity of computing resources required for such topics.
