Securing the Nation through Education
Founded in 2017 by Towson University (TU) professors, SecurEd Inc’s mission is “Securing the Nation through Education.” As a not-for-profit startup organization, our focus is helping academic institutions build a cyber-ready workforce. SecurEd provides products and services that help facilitate teaching, learning, and research across the data care education continuum.
We work on projects that span the whole nine yards in cybersecurity education from curriculum development, teaching, research in learning sciences, system development, and educational assessment.
The SecurEd team consists of current and former TU undergraduate and graduate students. Our development team focuses on open system architecture for web and mobile applications that engage the cyber education community. Our editorial team supports faculty looking to contribute and consume smart cybersecurity resources across disciplines and grade levels. All activities in SecurEd support the goal of providing intelligently-designed, free, cybersecurity curriculum for K-20.
The CLARK Curriculum Library
CLARK hosts the largest compilation of high-value, high-impact cybersecurity curriculum created by top researchers, peer-reviewed by instructional designers and subject matter experts. Instructors looking to teach new cybersecurity courses or expand and improve their own instruction, can find ready-to-use modular content, including videos, labs, and material they can modify and use under the creative commons license.
Cybersecurity Education Resource Directory
The Centers of Academic excellence Resource Directory, or CARD, maintains a categorized collection of resources that were developed by the cybersecurity education community and provides an organized manner of searching and accessing these resources. This resource directory simplifies the process of finding and accessing cybersecurity education resources within the cybersecurity community.
Building meaningful learning outcomes is a critical first step in creating appropriate instruction and authentic assessments. However, many instructors in higher education lack a formal background in instructional design and struggle with creating effective learning outcomes. Bloming Onion assists in the construction of learning outcomes by providing a Bloom’s taxonomy-based entry system that suggests verbs based on the level of the learning taxonomy.

What People Are Saying
CLARK saved me just two weeks ago: I’m teaching an ethical hacking class, and there was only 1 page in the book on IoT. I wanted to supplement it and needed to find something quickly to use in class that week. I searched CLARK and found a few options and selected one that I used in class – the lecture slides as well as an in-class hands-on activity doing device discovery with Shodan. It worked out really well. The common format in CLARK made it easy for me to quickly evaluate the modules and decide what would work best for my class and then use it.
CLARK is an amazing and great resource. For the first time we were held accountable for the curriculum we developed as part of a project. Additionally, when you go to CLARK, you find other materials that you could actually use in your classrooms.
Meet CLARK, the cybersecurity learning platform that’s powered by a team of Towson students. With a mission to “code responsibly,” a team of TU software engineering students is running a platform where faculty can find and build cybersecurity curriculum.
