Title:

Computer Science Principles Unit 4 Chapter 1 Lesson 10: Rapid Research - Cybercrime

URL:

https://curriculum.code.org/csp-18/unit4/10/

Content Source:

Code.org
Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

Students learn about various types of cybercrimes and the cybersecurity measures that can help prevent them. Then students perform a Rapid Research project investigating a particular cybercrime event with a focus on the data that was lost or stolen and the concerns that arise as a result. The Rapid Research activity features vocabulary, concepts, and skills that should help prepare them for the AP Explore PT, and also serves as a capstone for the sequence of lessons on encryption and security.

Students will be able to:
- explain the characteristics of a phishing attack.
- explain how a DDoS attack works.
- describe how one computer virus works.
- research and describe a cyber attack found in the news.
- reason about the threats posed by, and methods of recourse for, various types of cyber attacks.
- describe plausible storage, security, or privacy concerns for particular pieces of data.
