Unit 2 Task – Option 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 process used to protect computers, networks, programs and data from unauthorised access or attacks. This can be done professionals such as a cyber security specialist who designs and maintains systems to ensure that the data and information are kept secure.
Cyber Awareness is the understanding and knowledge of protecting information and data (eg. through passwords, firewalls, private vs. public information, etc).
Cyber Safety is the ability to behave responsibly and safely online as good digital citizens.


These three key ideas should be taught throughout the curriculum within the classroom as they will allow students to develop a sound understanding to follow the appropriate procedures to be safe online and to avoid unwanted attacks or privacy issues with their data and personal information.
