- 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?
The key difference between those 3 groups mentioned above is that cybersecurity is the way in which a device or computer is protected from potential malware threats. As for cyber awareness, it is the understanding of how your device or computer might get compromised or hacked. Cyber safety is when an individual carries out a task of protecting his/her device from potential threat or harm and avoiding potential hazard situations like unknown links. In the classroom setting, I think it is important to provide a holistic view to students about cyber awareness so that they understand the potential threats, teachers can then explain how this can be prevented and the ways it can be prevented so students have some background and basic knowledge for protecting themselves and their devices.
