Cyber security, Cyber Awareness and Cyber Safety

There are some significant differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety.

Cyber security means protecting computer systems and networks from the theft of or damage to their hardware. Cyber awareness is personal knowledge combined with attitudes and behaviours that protect our information on the internet. Cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology.

Cyber security protects data and information on networks, however, cyber safety protects individuals from harmful online content and activities. This is one of the key differences between them both.

I believe that these components are vital to teach as technology is becoming more important and popular in society both academically and socially. Students are required to understand how to protect their dat and personal information, and use the internet safely and effectively.
