ONLY Internet-Safety And NO Basics Of Cyber-Security Education In Schools!?

programmerman-animatedGovernment and Education MUST be digital illiterates when NOT accepting that it is time for TEACHing the basics of Cyber-Security! By reading the reports of experts from the professional companies from Cyber-Security protection software, one MUST accept the facts that Cyber-Crime is evolving at a very rapid rate! Cyber-criminals learned How-To trick the users and THEY are inventing every day NEW tricks to trick THEM (US ALL), BUT Education and ALSO the Government are NOT YET ready to counter such actions! 

WE have to ACCEPT that (that are facts!!!)  20% of all malware ever created appeared in 2013 and THAT there are 31.53 % infected computers worldwide!!! That MUST give people a kick for Deep-Thinking! In 2013 alone, cyber-criminals created and distributed 20 percent of all malware that has ever existed, with a total of 30 million new malicious strains in circulation, at an average of 82,000 per day. Check article below, please:

Isn’t it time to introduce in Schools as a MAIN core ===> LEARNing the basics of Cyber-Security <=== as WE are ALL using computers and ===> BYOD <=== (Bring Your Own Device) and actually ALSO using Mobile-LEARNing and e-LEARNing!? WE can’t anymore bury the heads in the sand and NOT wanting to see the problems! THE reality is there and it can’t get fought ONLY by giving the IT-Admin of the school THAT responsibility, that is pure NONSENSE and a Middle Ages mentality, excuse-me, please!

==========> WE are ALL responsible for a secure internet! <==========

How Could This Be Realized And Up From Which Age?

programmerman-animatedI suggest to teachInternet-Safetyup from the age of 5 years old and the basics ofCyber-Security to the kids up from the early age, 8 years old! THEY would be able to understand how to get used to reflexes! These reflexes SHOULD get repeated once a week. I suggest the Friday as I started it ages ago already on Social-Media Twitter. It is called the ===> Friday Security Check Day <=== and the Hashtag for it is ===> #FSCD <=== SO, as it is under the age of the terms of use from Twitter, parents need to get involved as well to help THEIR kids to become GOOD “Digital Citizen” and by the same way the parents will learn also and with that COLLABORATION WE are on the winning side to make the internet a more secure place! Everybody will profit from it ;)

Check upper corner on right-hand side, there is “Digital Security” mentioned ;) It should actually be ===> Cyber-Security <===

BUT anyway, it is THE BEST explication I ever have seen about “Digital Citizenship“!!!

 


SO… WHAT’S About Basic Cyber-Security Knowledge NOW As It Is Mentioned As Well!?

programmerman-animated.

That’s actually the easiest part of it, MOST of YOU think that it is the MOST difficult one, BUT it isn’t at ALL ;) It’s ONLY based on reflexes and a one-time installation of software on YOUR computers (Smartphones included…).  Please check my following blog posts and YOU will see how easy it is:
