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

– Cyber security is the employment of technology to “protect computers, networks, programs and data through robust computer science technology and systems” (learning material).

– Cyber awareness is to enhance users’ understanding of how to protect themselves and their information from cyber attacks.

– Cyber safety is how to operate online safely in terms of managing information and sharing information with others.

Within the scope of my teaching, the cyber awareness should be priorised to enhance cyber security and safety. That is why I always try to help to raise my students’ cyber awareness. When their awareness is well shaped, students will be able to find their own ways or learn from others to protect their information in a safe way.
