Data Care: The Monolith Formerly Known As Cybersecurity


CybraryDataCareCyndiGula


Cyndi Gula joined Cybrary Podcast #42 to discuss Data Care with Jonathan Meyers and Thomas Horlacher. 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!

data-logo1


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.

A Simple Case for more Maryland and Mid-Atlantic cyber product companies

0*ULcFk4lt2MrobMED
Earlier this year I was asked to serve on the steering committee of Governor Larry Hogan’s Excel Maryland Initiative. The initiative focuses on the development of a unique partnership of the private sector, public sector, and academia to craft a plan to support economic growth through the advanced industries, such as cyber security and life sciences, in Maryland. Having worked at the NSA and a number of cyber services and product companies, including Tenable Network Security and having made the switch to being a cyber-security start-up investor, I had a lot to say on this subject.
