“We must continue to strive toward establishing a common global cybersecurity language that spans government, industry, and academia: this is our center of gravity. Until we make progress, this is a deficiency that will remain a vulnerability that our common adversaries exploit to outpace and outmaneuver us. ”
People are an often overlooked line of defense in any cyber security strategy. If users aren’t clear about what they’re supposed to do or don’t understand what you are trying to tell them, even the best technology will not help. Human behavior, being what it is, is greatly helped by using simple and unambiguous language. So a word to the wise, if you’re a cyber security expert, make your language plain and free of jargon if you’re trying to enlist people in your fight against cyber crime.
