Cyber security is an increasingly important requirement for global business and modern society. We exist in a data-centric world, where information technology and associated communications networks and services pervade every aspect of our lives.

 

This makes the protection of our digital assets and activities in cyberspace of critical importance, whether for individual life experience or a prosperous and sustainable society. But the challenge to understand cyber risk and deliver effective and accessible security becomes harder as technology continues to rapidly evolve and our systems become ever more complex.

 

We are increasingly dependent upon such information and communications infrastructures and the threats we face are organised and evolving the skills to exploit our dependency to further their interests.

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | The Ischool library learningland | Scoop.it

Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.
