Task: Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety. To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extend do you think they should be taught and why?
Cyber security refers to protecting systems such as computers, networks and programs from viruses. Whereas, cyber awareness is about being aware of these risks and having the knowledge to prevent digital attacks. Cyber awareness is achieved through education and policies. On the other hand, cyber safety refers to being safe online. This means that we are behaving responsibly online and using online platforms appropriately.
I think these should be taught regularly in the classroom as the use of ICT in the modern world has increased rapidly. Students in todays modern world need to know how to protect themselves when using information technology. Also, they need to know how to keep their computers and networks safe by preventing digital attacks. Moreover, cyber safety needs to be taught to prevent cyber bullying.
