Unit 2 Answer


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 to what extend do you think they should be taught and why?

Cyber security is the application of technologies, processes and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber attacks- so it prevents cyber stacks from happening by making robust machines.

Cyber awareness is educating the users, on how they can save themselves from cyber attacks. Giving user more knowledge, on how they can safely use systems.

Cyber safety is managing online safety and sharing the information to the other user, if the user is sure that it is safe to do so.

I am doing relief teaching only and follow the instructions of the teachers who generally leave the program to be followed.

I do think cyber awareness is still at an infancy stage in schools. Although, the students know the term very well and they still don’t hesitate to share the information on internet. There are so many applications coming up in recent days and users do not even think twice before sharing the private information in the application. Therefore, the topic of awareness should be taught in more detail.
