Teaching Kids about Infosec

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to Reddit

Every once in a while we’ll blog about kid related stuff but recently we came across a community-driven resource for anyone interested in introducing information security to their kids. Started by @webbreacher on the NoVA Hackers Association email list a few weeks ago and released to the world, it has gelled quite nicely.

Personally, we like the Scratch programming language, the Qimo distro, the Defcon Kids conference, and the Control-Alt-Hack and [d0x3d!] games but you can find everything else in the list below as of today. Be sure to head over to the official Infosec Kids Google Doc for the most up to date contents … and maybe add a few resources.

Know of any more resources that should be included? Let @webbreacher know over in his Infosec Kids Google Doc. Today’s post pic is from WFSB.com. See ya!
