Cyber: what does it even mean?

Cyber is hot property nowadays. There’s not a “thought leader”, an organisation, a think tank, an industry body, government body, and the list goes on and on and on. There’s only one slight problem: no one agrees what ‘cyber’ actually means and what is and isn’t cyber. Every time I do risk related work I try to make sure everyone uses the same terms to mean the same thing, to reduce the risk of misunderstanding. It is such a simple and obvious step that most people forget about it.
