Abstract: Topics of digital security were neglected in our education for long time. Only in last two years studies have shown that digital natives or digi-kids are not sufficiently aware of these topics. Our research reveals that while students are not immune to these problems, teachers are almost completely ignorant about the digital security. We have created a master level course for teaching digital security in education, which we will run for the first time this year. In order to fulfil this task, we decide which topics are relevant for education and establish contemporary students' digital security knowledge. Topics related to psychology and other social sciences courses were not included but we provide ground knowledge for further studies. Therefore, we include topics of data security, computer viruses, computer fraud, spyware, and identity theft.
