Teaching children how to be safe online can be done by showing them 3 focus points – cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety.
Cyber security is protecting our computers and networks from our information being leaked essentially.
Cyber awareness is possibly the most important as it teaches students how to be safe online. What information is public and what is private, how to create strong passwords and several other key bits on knowledge.
Cyber safety is protecting the user from harmful content. Primary School aged children need to be taught how to distinguish between good website and dodgy website at an early age to protect themselves from potential harm.
