Unit 2

  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?

The main differences between cyber security, cyber awareness and cyber safety is that cyber security is about setting up technology that is used in the cyber space (computers, ipads, phones etc.) to protect themselves with different software and systems; whereas cyber awareness and safety are about giving people knowledge about how the cyber space works and how to protect your information & assests anad also how people approach and use technology in a responsible manner. I believe that children need to be taught as much about cyber security, awareness and safety as they can comprehend as technology is only evolving. These need to be incorporated into everday usage such as understanding password privacy and complexity, being aware of phsiing threats and sharing data appropriately and securely. Understanding how the cyber space works will only help them use the internet wisely and safely.
