Unit 2 task option 1

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 is having the skills and awareness to prevent attacks and applying & maintaining secure technology systems to ensure your ICT is unharmed; Cyber Awareness is the awareness of how your data is being used and how to keep it protected; Cyber Safety is recognising resources validity, and accessing the internet safely. In the classroom the main focus would be on recognising resources correctly so that my students are able to research independently and safely, and focusing on having secure accounts with strong credentials (not having your dogs name as a password etc.). This is important because as we are progressing into a Digital Technology focused society, the future generation need to know how to protect their information.
