ICT Awareness: What YOU SHOULD KNOW!
Since 1998 already I am giving FREE courses about IT-Security and Cyber-Security (since 2002 pedagogical ones…) as well as I blog a lot about it and it’s a NEVER ENDING story as the Virtual-World (Internet) is becoming more and more tricky and starting to become a trap for lots of people while surfing in the jungle of information worldwide… SO… There was published a lot about it and most people are worry of such a lot of BIG DATA and don’t know anymore where to START to learn about it! To make it handy for YOU, I will give YOU again a 5 minute small course about it, check below, please… YOU will see WHAT YOU have to take care about to stay secure and then YOU might click the links for a deeper knowledge, don’t fear as it’s easy ;)

The above mentioned tools are ALL part in Education and are getting used on a daily base from teachers and students around the world, AND Education doesn’t find it STILL necessary to teach the basics of Cyber-Security up from the early age!??? Did I say, the early age!??? YES, one can teach the kids the reflexes to stay secure up from five (5) years age, see link below:
===> In my humble opinion: WHEN NOT teaching the basics of Cyber-Security, I see this as NAIVETY and very close to stupidity! This is visually seen as let people drive a car and they make accidents with it and NOBODY will take its RESPONSIBILITY!!! Excuse-me, please :( <===
