Reaction and response 2

SC Leung of the Asia-Pacific Advisory Council (ISC) , talks about what and when young people should learn about cyber security and the way cyber criminals think. How aware do you think youth are today about cyber deviance? They are digital natives, born when the internet was available and aware of many of its capabilities. However, their security awareness varies. Some may know nothing about malware, online privacy or social engineering attacks. How should lessons about cybersecurity be given and by whom? Cybersecurity must be integrated into general safety education, teaching kids in the early years about the need for safety online for survival purposes. Later, when they have grown up, you can teach them online security and privacy, how to tackle online bullying and what they should know about cyber ethics. What are the most important rules for avoiding common cybersecurity risks? Observing patch security and software updates for apps and vulnerable systems is very important as well as the human equivalent: awareness of the need for security.

Should large organizations offer mentoring for young employees with hacker-like behaviour in the workplace? It should be done with care. It is like teaching kids karate. It needs to be accompanied by ethical education. We must make sure the kids are mature enough to manage the skills they learn. What should young people know about the risks of breaking ethical and legal rules on internet use? We must teach young people the impact and consequence of hacking, including the risks of collateral damage. What do you think might be the next big thing in tools for cybersecurity? Anonymity is the next big thing in tools for cybersecurity because people are afraid of espionage by nation states.

Some experts say that the only way to understand cyber risks is to “think like a hacker.” Do you think that ethical hacking should be part of general education? A demonstration of “offensive” cyber security skills is fine once young people have learned about online safety but teaching them how to go on the offensive needs careful handling. Such lessons should be delivered only to mature, stable people.
