Quoted from the ISECOM web site:
“The principles of hacking should be taught in schools, said Pete Herzog. It is the principles they need to learn to avoid from being victims on the Internet.
Herzog runs Hacker Highschool, a program to teach kids and teens security awareness and critical, Internet research skills.
