Technology and in particularly the Internet facilitate our daily life by making communication easier than ever before. People born after 1985 are not aware of a life without e-mail, and of that amazing sound that the modem used to make when connecting the computer to this special network called “the Internet”.
With the diffusion of social networks, sharing information has become effortless, and especially teenagers continuously share photos, information related to their location, feelings and other private information with their friends, often without being aware of the consequences.
The I Secure Project aims to empower education systems with an “information security culture”.
In this project, four different countries are involved to develop training for teachers and help them to become our “Information Security Agent”.
By training teachers, we believe to have an impact on students’ and parents’ awareness on the topic of information security.
We are 17 months into the project, which will last 36 months in total. We already performed a target needs analysis, involving school staff (teachers and headmasters), students (11-18 years) and their parents. Based on the needs identified, we designed the curriculum for the teachers training. We are now in the phase of defining the pedagogical content and the analysis and design of the IT architecture of the platform that will be used, labelled as “TEL I secure eco-system”.
