There are many differences between cyber security, cyber safety and cyber awareness.
Cyber security is the practice of protecting computers, networks, programs and data from online attacks. Cyber awareness is one’s knowledge, attitude and behaviours which aim to protect information and assets. Cyber safety refers to an individual’s ability to be safely and responsibly use information and communication technologies.
As I am studying to be a teacher I am yet to have the opportunity to undertake the teaching of these elements within the classroom. After completing my education course, I believe that these elements will be critical to building cyber safety and awareness for my future students. Cyber safety and awareness is constantly growing, therefore it is a becoming vital in everyday life for those using technology, therefore the inclusion of these elements in the curriculum is essential to the success of students understanding.
