OCR GCSE Computer Science Lesson: Forms of Attacks

This is a complete lesson for the forms of attacks against networks (for OCR GCSE 9-1 1.6).

This resource features a full PowerPoint presentation lesson that includes a starter and necessary information about each form and class of attacks. This includes:

  • Active Attacks
  • Passive Attacks
  • Inside Attacks
  • Outside Attacks

There are questions on some slides for class discussion about that specific attack.

As well as that, there are 2 worksheets for students to fill in - this is to consolidate their knowledge. Most answers for the worksheets are in the PowerPoint and some others require commons sense. I like to go through the answers with my class so that we can have a discussion. An exam-styled 8 mark question is included; I think these are very important as they can be the difference between a grade. I included the mark scheme for each worksheet if you like to give your students the mark scheme so that they can self-assess.

If you have any inquiries, suggestions or criticisms you can send an email to helenamat69(at)gmail.com
