The Cyber Toons are designed to introduce various security concepts in a fun and easy to understand format. The Cyber Toons feature the Cyber Family along with a cast of characters (good and bad). Each Cyber Toon is around 1 to 3 minutes in length and is prefect for starting a class discussion. The Cyber Toons are divided into different topic areas where some topics have multiple Cyber Toons. For each of the Cyber Toons we are working to provide in class discussion questions that can be used to help facilitate in class conversations about the topic. For each topic area we are also working to provide a set of in-class activities and simple assessments.
