Unit 2: Task 1

The question I am responding to is:
Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cybersecurity, cyber awareness and cyber safety. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extent do you think they should be taught and why?

The key differences that I have perceived are as followed

  1. Cybersecurity: How computers, networks, and data are protected from attacks.
  2. Cyber Awareness: The knowledge an individual has that allows them to protect their identity and safety online.
  3. Cyber Safety: The safe use of ICT.

I believe that all three of these areas should be taught extensively and repeatedly throughout all of primary and secondary school, now more then ever our world is becoming highly digitised with unfathomable amounts of sensitive data being stored online and many jobs requiring the use of digital systems. Therefore it is imperative that students are equipped with the skills needed to safely navigate the online world because with every passing year it becomes more ingrained into every aspect of our day to day lives.
