Unit 2 Task

Explain what you think are some of the key differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety.

It is important to understand that these 3 components are inextricably linked. Cybersecurity is about protecting networks, servers and devices from hackers online. In order to understand the importance of cyber security, one needs to have cyber awareness. Cyber awareness is about understanding how the online world works and an individuals attitudes and behaviours that protect information. The final aspect is cyber safety which is about making smart and informed decisions when it comes to the use of technologies and knowing what is and is not acceptable.

To what extent are you teaching these in the classroom or to what extend do you think they should be taught and why

In today’s day and age, students are growing up in a more technology focused world than ever before. for this reason, students need to be taught about cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety in order for them to make good decisions and understand the new normal world they are living in.
