Unit 4 task

The image attached below (sourced from https://www.pandasecurity.com/en/mediacenter/panda-security/social-media-scams/) shows a common basic pop up/message scam offering a free prize to access either personal information, information of others, or control of your device. It clearly depicts the kind of vernacular used in digital scams (not personalised) and the use of urgency (time limit) to encourage an impuls rushed decision.

The unit plan linked below published by the Australian Digital Technologies Hub for a year 2 class, starts off with a password component. This introduces to the students the concepts and importance of passwords in digital technology. It begins with discovering what students understand about passwords and their experiences with them to build a field of knowledge and get them to think about the importance of them through group discussion. A password rap video is added in the lesson to help introduce and illustrate passwords to the students to solidify their understanding. Finally the students create a poster about what key features a password needs and what it protects.



The future of cyber attacks will continue to be largely about data collection, accessing private infromation that can allow deviants to access bank accounts, data for social manipulation, sensitive information to blackmail with. Much of the data that miscreants will try to collect from consumers will not be meliciously used by themselves directly, but sold onto independant state actors and/or corperations to inform them of a populations preferences, location, movment, thoughts and opinions.
