During the hour discussion, Cyndi discussed how the term "cyber" is vague, not personal and not inviting to those outside our industry. Broadening our industry name with the term "Data Care" makes it easier to convey personal digital responsibility for the general public and also easier to recruit more people to a career in cybersecurity.

Welcome to the Data Care industry!

The term ‘cybersecurity’ must change with society.  Cyndi and I have spent a lot of time speaking with students, politicians, and business leaders about cybersecurity and concluded that the term ‘cybersecurity’ does not invoke the personal sense of responsibility necessary, nor is it as inviting to the majority of the public including minorities, women and young adults who might not seek a career in this field due to lack of exposure of what the term means. We must recruit in greater numbers into the industry. Cyber touches all of our lives, yet cybersecurity is perceived by the general public as something only experts do and can solve for us. This is the wrong message. We would like to suggest the use of the term “Data Care” to make cybersecurity synonymous with personal responsibility and expand our industry in much the same way medical professionals have done with the term “Health Care.”  Finally, diversity is imperative, so we must encourage as broad participation as possible because the fact of the matter is, Data Care is everyone's responsibility.
