Students in Russian schools may begin to be taught cyber hygiene. This was announced on Tuesday, February 7, by Deputy Director of the Cybersecurity Department of the Ministry of Digital Development Yevgeny Khasin at the Infoforum.
According to him, the basics of cybersecurity on the Web can be included in the general course of the subject of life safety. Meanwhile, Khasin noted, the issue is more within the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education, writes NSN.
Khasin stressed that today digital security issues are being introduced into all industries. In his opinion, separate semester courses at universities could be given to this area, and the topic of cyber hygiene could be introduced in schools as part of the life safety.
In January, a new season of the digital literacy project for schoolchildren started in the Moscow Region. As the 360 TV channel notes, its main goal is to teach children how to counter cyber threats.
Minister of Public Administration, Information Technologies and Communications of the Moscow Region Nadezhda Kurtyanik noted that it is important that children not only know how to use modern technologies, but also know how to do it safely.
Also in January, PRO32 CTO Vitaly Zemskikh told how to avoid leaking passwords from online services. According to him, you should familiarize yourself with the information about the password manager, since it is likely that the program you like has already been seen in a data leak. In this case, you should not use it.
In March, cybersecurity specialist Vladimir Ulyanov, in an interview with the Zvezda TV channel, told Internet users how to protect their data from leaking to the Web when making online purchases. According to him, when placing an order in online stores and other services, you can specify your data incompletely or change them. The specialist recommended providing information about yourself only to the extent that is sufficient for processing and fulfilling the order.
