[Dshield] Most absurd

John,  I have developed mine own outline and Powerpoint presentation based
on many different resources.  I continue to develop and tune it based on the
feedback from the audiences and any new issues that come up.  There is a lot
of good information on the internet including SANS institutes information.

Here are some sights that I refer the attendees to for more information:
http://www.sans.org/rr/paper.php?id=616
http://www.cert.org/homeusers/HomeComputerSecurity/
http://www.sans.org/rr/paper.php?id=625

I also use information from various sites to talk about things like Identity
Theft and Staying Safe Online and protecting children at all ages.

There is a great deal of information available.  I have been teaching a
group of students from 7 to 12th grade now for 4 weeks.  The class is once a
week for an hour.  The kids had no idea that things like Kazaa are not only
illegal but also dangerous.  It has been really great working with the kids
and it has been well received. The school administration is really pleased
with the feedback that they have gotten from the kids. They have discussed
having me come to a parent teacher meeting and present the information to
them.

I really want to educate the users - home and small business.

Absolutely!

Is there a curriculum available so that people who want to teach such a
class have a good basis?

An Open-Source Curriculum for Basic Internet Skills, anyone?
