Unit 2 – Task – 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?

As mentioned in Unit 1, there are 3 important ideas in the course: Cyber Security, Cyber Awareness and Cyber Safety. In my opinion, the key difference of these 3 ideas comes from their definition.

Cyber Security is the act of creating protection on the cyber space. Strength of protection depends on its creators.

Cyber Awareness is the act of teaching, training other people the importance of safety and how to avoid threats

Cyber Safety, on the other hand, reflects the ethic of netizens. It implies the responsibility of the person about how they use and share information on the Internet.

Covid-19 Pandemic has huge affects on our daily lives, one of those is the rate of people surfing the Internet daily, especially the youth. They may be exposed to unhealthy information as well as threats of being cyber bullied or ID thief. Therefore, Cyber Awareness and Cyber Safety are 2 crucial ideas that should be taught and trained in school to protect our children from invisible threats.
