Task 2 – CSER


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 do you think they should be taught?

Cyber Security:

  • Involves protecting computers, networks, programs and data through robust computer science technology and systems

Cyber Awareness:

  • Building our knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in protecting our information and assets

Cyber Safety:

  • Managing and collaborating online safely and responsibly

All three need to be taught together in conjunction as one does not operate with the other. As a general capability within the ACARA curriculum is ICT, there is a consistent focus on how to incorporate technology into the classroom. Students now BYOD so they need to be aware of how to respectfully communicate and also understand the different types of threats that can come through on your device. It is appropriate to be aware of security options you can install onto your computer to help assist with protecting you and your personal information.
