Unit 2 Task – Option 1

Cyber awareness and safety are very similar in that they are both knowledge based. To be cyber aware is to be cyber safe.

Cyber Security is ensuring our devices are protected from outside sources so that our information is protected from digital attacks.

Cyber safety is an active choice that is made that helps decide how information is used and displayed responsibly. Cyber awareness is ensuring everyone is learning the way in which to be cyber safe by teaching the attitude, knowledge and behaviours that aim to protect us in the cyber world.

Students should be made aware of the dangers within the cyber world. They should be taught ways to ensure they remain safe online and that its important to talk about things regarding online/cyber topics if anything is bothering them. It should be an open discussion where students can talk about their cyber experiences; positive or negative, then further discuss what is right and wrong. Real life examples are important.
