CyberPatriot Instructional Video Series Available

If you or your high school partners have wondered what the CyberPatriot program is all about, take a look at ITProTV’s newly released instructional video series co-hosted by Steve Linthicum, Deputy Sector Navigator of the Information and Communications Technologies/Digital Media Sector in the Greater Sacramento Region.

Linthicum made the trip to the ITProTV studios last fall to shoot the videos which cover a number of modules including Introduction to Online Safety, Cyber Ethics, Virtualization, Microsoft Windows Security Tools, Intro to Linux and Ubuntu, and more. Each video segment presents the CyberPatriot program material in a way that is easy for students, teachers, and coaches to absorb.

To view the video series, students and their coaches simply sign up for a free account which gives them access to the entire video series.

Linthicum is aware of the difficulty some high schools may have in delivering cybersecurity training, and was happy to partner with ITProTV in this effort.

“My sense is the students and their coaches, particularly in settings where they have been unable to attract ‘technical mentors’ to help provide cybersecurity instruction, will find this video series helpful,” he said.
