Personal Data and Information

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Computing. Specifically it looks at protecting personal data and information. It is one of 20 quizzes to help you find out about how computers work, and how they affect all our lives.

Computers can store vast amounts of information. Another word for all that information is data.
