SAN MATEO, Calif. & BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Norse Corporation today announced a new, groundbreaking partnership with Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) education leader LifeJourney to launch a new “Cyber Attack Intelligence LifeJourney™.” The new, interactive Norse LifeJourney site will help teachers inspire high school students across the country to prepare for careers in cybersecurity by learning about the educational and career paths followed by real cybersecurity professionals while interacting with the Norse Live Attack Map. The Norse Live Attack Map provides a unique real time view into cyber attacks all over the world, and explores their impact on economics, law, technology and political science.
“Using the Norse Live Attack Map as the centerpiece of this LifeJourney will provide teachers with a compelling and interactive teaching instrument that brings the ‘wow’ of cybersecurity into the classroom,” said Norse CEO Sam Glines. “On the Norse LifeJourney, students will be able to make direct connections between the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) courses they choose now, and their future careers in cybersecurity on the world stage.”
“Over 300,000 well-paid cybersecurity jobs go unfilled every year in the U.S. alone, because of the cyber talent gap. Parents and kids can now recognize the huge opportunity that a career in cybersecurity represents, and help students gain the skills now they’ll need to win their place in the new economy,” said Rick Geritz, LifeJourney CEO. “Cybersecurity impacts almost every part of a school’s curriculum. The new Norse LifeJourney provides high school teachers with powerful teaching tools that they can use in classes ranging from technology to math, international relations and history.”
