Unit 2 – Task 2

Some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety might be characterised as a three pronged tool for; protecting your devices, building on personal knowledge to protects personal information and managing online spaces.

More specifically, cyber security protects devices through robust science technology systems. Cyber awareness considers the educative process to help people protects themselves, whether that be through two factor authentication, up to date policies and procedures or general cyber awareness knowledge. And finally, cyber safety is a collaborative process whereby people participate in safe online practices.


I believe that these three distinctive and overlapping layers of security should be a key focus within classrooms. More than ever, peoples lives are entwined online and therefore it goes without saying that students need to be a competent participant in this space.
