unit 2: task – option 1


According to CISCO, cyber security is “cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.”
Whereas Cyber Guard Technologies states that cyber awareness is “is the combination of both knowing and doing something to protect a business’s information assets. When an enterprise’s employees are cyber security aware, it means they understand what cyber threats are, the potential impact a cyber-attack will have on their business and the steps required to reduce risk and prevent cyber-crime infiltrating their online workspace.”
Alternatively, Virtual Library regards cyber safety as “the ability to act in a safe and responsible manner on the internet and other connected environments. These behaviours protect personal information and reputation and include safe practices to minimise danger online.”
Primary students need to be taught safe practices for using the internet. In addition, they need to understand the three concepts: cyber safety, cyber security, cyber awareness. As education and life rely heavily on the use of the internet, students will use the internet for various reasons. Consequently, teaching these concepts must empower students to sufficiently define, justify, and explain these concepts.
