Cyber security education is an integral part of technology education. It is aimed at raising awareness about online threats and teaching methods of protection against them. It does not longer belong to online security specialists’ are of responsibility due to a wide prevalence of cybercrime. The problem of a quality cyber security education lies in a lack of educational materials designed for non-specialists. Most people do not know how to protect their information. For instance, they do not create strong passwords, are not aware about the need to clean browser cache, or use applications that collect their personal information. Moreover, Internet users often do not know about the possible consequences of being a cybercriminals’ victim.

With a goal to change this situation, there have been created cyber security courses available for all Internet users.
