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?

Cyber security means protecting data and information networks. Cyber awareness is building our knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in protecting our information and assets. Cyber safety means protecting users from harmful online content.

At the present situation, being affected by Covid 19, students move into a digital learning space and spend considerable time online every day. Therefore, we can teach our students to invest unique and strong passwords for all accounts that are created online, which can help to prevent from hackers stealing sensitive data. In addition, advise them to be responsible about what they share online as the impact may be big, for instance, sharing details about credit cards may land them in trouble.
