Task 2, Option 1

  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 involves professionals who protect and secure information online and through devices. Cyber awareness relates to having the knowledge and skills required to protect our information and be safe online. Cyber safety relates to being responsible and taking the appropriate safety measures when online.

I believe that these concepts, in particular cyber awareness and cyber safety should be a frequent topic within the classroom. With technology playing a large role within our lives, students need to be educated about risks involved when being online and sharing information. From this, students should be equipped with the knowledge and skills about how to be safe online. If students have this knowledge, this can prevent many unsafe online incidents from occurring such as identity theft.
