There are some significant differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety.
Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems and networks from the theft of or damage to their hardware. Cyber awareness is a persons understanding of potential cyber threats and how a person can avoid them. Cyber safety is about keeping information safe and secure and being responsible with information online.
A key difference is that cyber security protects data and information, however, cyber safety protects individuals from harmful online content and activities.
I believe it is vital for students to learn these components at school as they are becoming more popular in the technological world both academically and socially. Students need to learn what it means to be safe on the internet and protect their personal information.
