Unit 2 Question 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 do you think they should be taught?

The key differences between Cyber Security, Cyber Awareness and Cyber Safety is that Cyber Awareness and Safety focuses on peoples actions and behaviours whilst Cyber security is the protection of the computer, networks and programs itself.

Cyber Security; is the protection of computers, network programs and data using computer science technology.

Cyber Awareness; builds our knowledge and behaviours in protecting our information this includes having strong passwords, two-face authentication and knowing what information you shouldn’t share on the internet.

Cyber Safety: is managing how we collaborate online safely and responsibly including considering our digital footprint through thinking thoroughly what we post on the internet, citing and crediting original work and being careful with our devices and tools.

I believe all three should be taught to our students, with students becoming more active on the internet it is crucial for them to know how their data is being protected, how they can protect themselves and being aware of their own digital footprint.
