Abstract. The question of the need to teach schoolchildren to use cyberspace safely is the most discussed today. The analysis of the methodological literature and Internet sources suggests that almost all the proposed materials are instructive in nature. Students are not involved in activity of cyber threat recognition and decision making in difficult situations. In addition, the proposed tools do not constitute ancomprehensive system that will allow schoolchildren to learn the basics of cybersecurity at school. This is led to holding the „The week of cybersecurity“ event at school as a comprehensive means to prepare schoolchildren for safe behavior in cyberspace.The article describes the experience and results of the first week of cybersecurity in educational institutions of the Arkhangelsk region. This event made it possible to implement the proposed conceptual model of teaching the basics of cybersecurity at school.
