Unit 2 Task

  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 extent do you think they should be taught and why?

Cyber Security is the protection of computers, networks, programs and data through the use of robust computer science technology and systems.

Cyber Awareness is the built knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in protecting our information and assets.

Cyber Safety is managing and collaborating online safely and responsibly.

In this day and age where the internet, social media and a wide range of technologies are used in our daily life it is important that students become informed technology users. This involves them being taught cyber safety, awareness and security. These are all skills that will benefit students throughout their whole life. This is why I believe the Digital Technologies subject is so important. Students should be provided with the opportunity to have an advanced understanding of cyber security, awareness and safety.  These topics should vary depending on the year level.
