The cyber primer from the BSI

The Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) and Germany safe online (DsiN) have published a cyber primer with the aim of giving consumers more knowledge about the digital world. The work is available as a printed version and as a two-part PDF that can be downloaded free of charge.

The cyber primer is a successful collection of knowledge on the subject of digitization. It imparts skills in dealing with digital media.

Download option and application for printing

The cyber primer is divided into two areas: The “digital worlds” section describes the technologies and offers that are used on the Internet. The “Digital Skills” section, on the other hand, aims to explain how to protect your data and what possible threats there are on the Internet.

The two parts can be downloaded here as a PDF:

If you think you need the printed version with a weight of 1,8 kg, you can do it here via the order form can be sent free of charge.

Before you all order a printed version, you should know that approximately 2,2 kilograms of wood are required to produce one kilogram of paper (Source). Maybe you can get by without dead trees and fall back on the PDF, which can also be updated more frequently.

The print edition of the Cyber ​​Primer weighs almost 2 kg and is more intended for people who are involved in education.

Target group of the cyber primer: knowledge brokers

According to the introductory remarks by BSI President Arne Schönbohm, the cyber primer is primarily aimed at people who are in contact with other people and can thus pass on their knowledge.

The cyber primer is aimed at people who work professionally or on a voluntary basis in consumer advice. In associations, foundations, educational institutions or associations, these knowledge mediators help educate many people about the interrelationships in the digital world. In the cyber primer, basic protection skills are presented in an understandable manner.

Ultimately, all parents are also knowledge mediators, which is why I miss them a bit in the list of target groups.

Successful design and good content

When preparing the cyber primer, a clear content structure was chosen, which is also reflected in the layout. Breaking it down into small, easy-to-work chapters is a good step in helping consumers understand topics that are difficult to understand, such as encrypting data storage media or setting up a wireless router securely.

When reading the cyber primer, I noticed a lot of practical content that you would actually like to give to everyone who is on the Internet. From choosing the right password to the risks of using social media or the advantages and disadvantages of a password manager, everything you could want is included.

The layout and the structuring of the information is very successful.

My conclusion on the cyber primer

For me there is a clear recommendation for downloading the Cyberbible. Finally a tax-financed project where you feel like the money is well spent.

I would even say that as a parent you should leaf through the cyber primer, because a lot of things not only affect the children, but also how parents use the Internet. And even if the children have a better understanding of the technology and you may not be able to teach them much in this regard, you can still learn a lot of things through the manual and are guaranteed to have more convincing discussions with the young people when it comes to WhatsApp, Facebook and Co. goes.
