There are many key differences between cyber safety, cyber awareness and cyber security. Cyber safety focuses on the physiological and emotional wellbeing of a person using the internet or any network. Cyber security is a set of techniques applied to the network or system to protect it against cyber attacks. Cyber awareness is the knowledge, attitude and behaviours we use to protect ourselves and informational assets.
When I teach students about practical internet safety precautions, I share with them how to be wary of strange links, how to set a password to prevent it from being stolen, be aware of the security of your personal information, consider carefully when posting online.
