Cyber Security: The measures that are taken to ensure the safety of others online. This includes changing passwords regularly and hashing them, ensuring necessary firewalls are working and not sharing your private information.
Cyber Awareness: Is remaining vigilant of updates in cyber security and technology. This includes maintaining a clean/small digital footprint and checking for security breaches.
Cyber Safety: Is ensuring that you are maintaining a safe environment online. This includes making a strong password, not sharing that passwords, not visiting fraudulent websites and installing trusted cyber protection onto your devices.
I believe all three should be taught extensively as technology is always changing and there is always someone out there trying to harm others, as unfortunate as that is. The best way for students and teachers to defend themselves from these assailants is to be taught cyber security, awareness and safety.
