INTE 120 : Word Choice for the Cyber threat paper.
Fall 2020 : Cybercrime, cyberattack, cyberterrorism. Word choice matters in undefined or ill-defined matters. How words are spelled matters. (Cyber crime vs. cybercrime).
Across the relevant research databases for the cyber threat space there is not yet a firm consensus on precisely what term or word to be using to define a particular activity.
Whenever possible, use the term / terms / phrase that the research database has elected to use (that's what the database editors, various artificial algorithms, and human indexers do to make research more organized and less choatic through the controlled vocabulary that typically appear in the thesaurus of terms). Do this not because you like it or agree with it; but rather for the ability to consistently provide you with relevant results and facilitate your research and learn about the verbiage and "terms of art" in a discipline.
Below are some various examples of the large differences in results depending upon which term you elect to use.
