Cybersecurity – Is the act of providing defence for your electronic devices; such as phones, tablets, desktops or laptops. This defence can come in many forms, however, the most common are anti-virus programs, firewalls and VPNs. Cybersecurity can also be provided by changing passwords regularly and having extra login steps.
Cyber awareness – is understanding the potential threats and risks of using electronic devices and the internet. It is also putting into practice cybersecurity measures so that these risks and threats are removed or minimised.
Cybersafety – Is Utilising the cyber awareness and cybersecurity skills to ensure you have a safe experience online. It is about safely navigating the internet by avoiding potentially dangerous websites and ensuring you have all of the necessary safety precautions in place.
Task 1 – There are multiple classroom network services available that provide an opportunity for students to start their online networking journey in a safe and controlled manner. These services often have students post examples of their work online where teachers and other students can view and react to the work. Students can practice proper sharing practices by ensuring that the follow cyber safe methods when posting their work. They can select whether it’s private or personal and ensure they haven’t included and personal information. This will establish a cyber-safe mindset and hopefully, when students access network systems when they’re older they carry on these safety procedures.
Task 2 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjPpG2e71Ec This video details the difference between personal and private information sharing via the internet. It is a useful resource to show children to have them understand the difference between the two options. This video could be paired with an activity where students are given a sheet of paper with different types of information they could share. Next, they could list whether they would make this information public or private and why.
