School Teaches kids about Cyber Security
William Kates of the Associated Press writes:
"A group of students at Rome Catholic School are learning how to become the future defenders of cyberspace through a pilot program that officials say is the first of its kind in the country.
The program teaches students about data protection, computer network protocols and vulnerabilities, security, firewalls and forensics, data hiding, and infrastructure and wireless security.
Most important, officials said, teachers discuss ethical and legal considerations in cyber security."
Now that's a wise move. I think every school should start to consider teaching computer security to their students. Most young people surf around the web carelessly and do not realize the implication of installing free games or clicking on a suspect link in an email.
