Unit 2 – Question 1
Cyber security consists of the policies and practices adopted to prevent and monitor unauthorised access of a computer network, routers and other network-related resources. Network security includes protection of data and application in the network from cyber attacks (e.g. anti-malware), virtual private networks, firewall protection and network access control policies.
Cyber awareness refers to how much end-users know about the cyber security threats their networks face, the risks they introduce and mitigating security best practices to guide their behavior.
Cyber safety is trying to be safe on the internet and is the act of maximizing a user’s awareness of personal safety and security risks to private information and property associated with using the internet, and the self-protection from computer crime.
I am teaching cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety in the classroom at a knowing level. I think they should be taught at a higher level as understanding and application are very helpful for students in classroom. Help students raise awareness when participating in the online environment to protect personal information and property.
