North Dakota Becomes First State to Mandate Cybersecurity Education

 North Dakota has become the first state in the US to approve legislation that mandates cybersecurity education. Governor Doug Burgum signed into law House Bill 1398, which requires the teaching of computer science and cybersecurity, integrating these content standards into K-12 classrooms. The bill

 reflects a working group’s vision for K-12 education's computer science and cybersecurity instructional needs since 2015. The legislation is intended to equip future leaders and teachers to navigate the ever-evolving world of technology, promoting events such as CyberMadness tournaments and Girls Go Cyberstart competitions in North Dakota schools. The Governor also encourages older generations to learn about cybersecurity through online classes in cybersecurity, networking, programming, and more.
