The key to better online security—as with other social problems and malaise—is better education, argues one education entrepreneur who believes that schools are in a unique position to reach both tomorrow’s consumer and potential security expert. “Pretty much every week you’ll hear about a major hack in the news,” says Jeremy Keeshin, the CEO of CodeHS. “And most people don’t know even the ABCs of how to create a secure password.” Keeshin’s company is perhaps best known for a series of introductory coding courses it offers on programming languages such as Javascript and Python. But starting this fall it’s adding something new to its roster: a cybersecurity course for high schoolers.
