Re: New word for Cyber
Logical Security would be another term to seperate us from the physical realm.

New Word for Cyber
Personally, cyber doesn't bother me that much.  It is what it is.  That said, "Void" seems a rather appropriate term if not a bit dated in the sci-fi world anyway.  Thank you Dan Simmons for the highly original and classic reference.  The internet and cyber space has become so analagous to everything not physical and immediatly tactile that void seems a legitimate term to me.  It would certainly represent the future of all thing cyber and the lack of any ability to control where it goes and how it is used.  I already reference it this way myself.

Re: The perennial struggle
Well, we did go from calling it "cybersex" and "cybering" to "sexting."  I guess something similar is possible for cybersecurity, too!

Re: The perennial struggle
Haven't accepted it yet! ;-)  I did hear from some of my DoD friends that there are now many who groan when they hear the term "cyber" even in DoD conversations, so perhaps the term will fall out of favor with most. Stay tuned.

The perennial struggle
I remember my best friend and I having a discussion like this 20 years ago.

People talked about this in the '90s, and they haven't stopped.  Maybe we should just accept it already.

New word for Cyber
What about technical security? Seperates us from the physical guys, but is still broad enough to encompass IOT, mobile, network, PC . . .
