Cybersecurity & The Principles Of Science

Cybersecurity is an applied science itself. However, looking at this science from a social science view, there are a couple that we adhere to relativism, objectivity, parsimony, empiricism, ethical neutrality, and determinism. Relativism connects and allows us to see the developmental changes with the technology today. Also, how society is advancing and adapting to these advancements. Objectivity often requires a sense of opinionated judgment but these can’t shape the overall conclusion of particular cyber behavior. This is needed when addressing a cyber issue. Self-control is explored through parsimony which, cybercrime is a connection to this theory. When it comes to simplicity, it’s not easy to simplify the reasoning why people commit these mischievous acts since this is a part of parisomy. Through ethical neutrality, this takes reflection or concern about how we use technology for other purposes besides the internet. Today artificial intelligence is a common, ethical concern. Is it useful or harmful? Last but not least, to figure out the cause of these behaviors, determinism is applied. However, with computer usage, there is a certain motive with this whether it’s good or bad. With determinism, we have the option to engage with certain online activities or not to engage at all. All of these principles relate to cybersecurity because it’s used as an aid in identifying the behaviors of people on the internet and in the workforce. This can also explain the nature of human activity in the digital world and is useful for creating policies.
