Cyber Security protects technological objects/elements such as computers, networks, programs and data from digital attacks to their software. This can be compared to Cyber Safety where it is implemented for the protection of people compared to the technology software. Comparatively, Cyber Awareness is not the physical protection but rather the understanding, knowledge and attitudes to personally protect information assets. Although, these three elements work alongside each other to achieve the same goal- Cyber Safety and Awareness when teaching children.
I believe these three concepts should be thoroughly taught to children in primary school to ensure that they are aware of the physical and technological threats of using technology and the internet. Although, the extent of teaching these three elements should be monitored to ensure students still feel safe and comfortable when using technology in the classroom as it should be implemented into their curriculum learning as addressed in the Australian Curriculum.
