Cyber security is about protecting computers and networks from digital attacks, Cyber awareness is about us as users, having the knowledge about how to protect our information and Cyber safety is the responsibility of all digital users to be safe and responsible in the use and sharing of information on digital platforms.
I think it is incredibly important to teach children about Cyber Security and Awareness as a lot of time is spent on devices at home and school these days, it is easy for children to fall into the trap of oversharing personal information on line. They need to be aware that what they post is a lasting digital footprint that can have a detrimental impact on their life should information or photographs end up in the wrong “hands”.
There’s also the opportunity for cyber bullying to occur when young people are unaware of their rights and responsibilities as a digital user.
