Unit 2 Task

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 extent do you think they should be taught and why?

Cyber security deals directly with any digital system; cyber security protects these computing systems, network systems, or data systems from digital attacks that may have access to sensitive information. Cyber awareness focuses on the idea of creating solid digital thresholds that help protect the information, this can be achieved by simply creating strong passwords, and by encouraging students to use ICT safely. Cyber safety refers to the importance of students acting safely and responsibly online; especially when accessing unknown websites, interacting with strangers, or sharing personal information on online forums.

Teaching students about cyber safety is essential in any modern-day classroom. With the shift of online learning becoming more prominent every year, it is absolutely vital that students are well informed on how to operate technology responsibly and safely.
