Unit 2

Some key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety include your role within these and how you can protect yourself.

Cyber security refers more to protecting your devices, data and information from attacks/hackers, requiring you to be aware and informed about possible dangers.

Cyber awareness refers to how we protect our information and ourselves from attacks. Such as using firewalls, binary and using secure passwords.

Cyber safety relates to the information you share online, what is safe to share and what is not safe to share. This could be an engaging and valuable lesson for students as they determine what information is safe/not safe to share about themselves online.

All aspects of being safe online are important to teach within schools as it gives students a greater understanding of how to protect themselves.
