Journal Entry 2

In order to relate cybersecurity to the principles of science, we can brake them into these categories:

  • Relativism
  • Objectivity
  • Parsimony
  • Skepticism
  • Empiricsim
  • Ethical Neutrality
  • Determinsim

Relativism shows us how cyber security is relative to many aspects of our life such as sociology, criminology, and technology. Being able to relate cyber security to these examples of our everyday agendas, makes it easier to implement and increase its effectiveness. Objectivity lets us ask questions and determine the facts of the matter pertaining to how, why, when, etc we utilize it. Parisomony helps break down the core levels of cyber into layman terms. Being able to describe the process of cyber as simply as possible helps the industry better communicate with the consumers. Empiricism means that by using our five senses we can experience the atmosphere of cyber security. This coincides with objectivity as we are using facts and observable features of the cyber complex to frame our understanding of it. Ethic neutrality lays out a guideline of rules and laws as to which the cyber profession abides. Things like limiting usage of the internet to certain groups of people or the spread of people’s data are both commonly talked about issues regarding ethics. Determinism shows us that actions made by individuals are caused, determined, or influenced by prior events. In cyber security, it asks questions as to why people commit fraud on the internet, why people use certain passwords and other security measures including the sharing of them, or exploring dangerous websites.
