Hacker Highschool

Hacker Highschool is a complete, self-guided curriculum for cybersafety and cybersecurity. It is designed for teens from 12-20 years old. HHS combines instruction written in narrative and practical exercises which can be completed with a standard computer and an internet connection to facilitate learning in a classroom or at home. 

The curriculum is a self-contained set of lessons and can be presented by a teacher or a proctor. No previous cybersecurity skill is required to lead these lessons. No presentation material is required. No additional books are required. 

The HHS curriculum  challenges teens at three levels from novice to advanced to be as resourceful and creative as hackers while teaching problem-solving, learning from failure, scientific method, and empathy.The lessons cover a large range of skills like safe Internet use, web privacy, online research techniques, system and network security, and even dealing with cyberbullies. Course completion allows for the students to take the official certification exam, Certified Hacker Analyst, and be certified by the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies. This certification proves competence for working as a Cybersecurity professional in a large variety of entery-level positions. 

HHS is internationally recognized with lessons in multiple languages and millions of downloads each year. It is high quality, based on the OSSTMM which is the international standard for security research, testing, and analysis.
