    We Need A New Word For Cyber

    John B. Dickson

    One of the hits of Black Hat 2015 in Las Vegas was a T-shirt featuring a growling Sam Jackson from one of Pulp Fiction’s more memorable scenes. Pointing his oversized handgun downrange, Jackson’s character threatens, “Say Cyber One More Time…” There was at least one word at the end that added even more emphasis, but the message was clear. Some clever designer captured what many security folks at the conference quietly thought. The word “cyber” has become so overused it is nearly meaningless. The term “cyber” has risen to the level of “information superhighway” or “web 2.0” and is clearly a target for ridicule. At the same time, others, mostly .gov and .mil guys, still use it in a forceful and matter of fact way.

    Another word that is overused is "strategic". We should be conducting strategic calorie intact operations 3 times a day. $%$%
