A Purposeful Systems Design Approach for Cybersecurity

11 pagesPublished: September 27, 2019

Abstract

The paradigm of purposeful systems is used to analyze and define cyberspace as a collection of functions that are to be provided and preserved if harm to various elements of the space is to be avoided. We consider harm to individuals, groups of humans, as well as humanity as a whole and identify an overall systems approach to regulating cyberspace that can guide efforts currently undertaken by various governmental and industry organizations. The approach is based on clear universal ethical principles. The result will harness the full potential of cyberspace while eliminating opportunities for “bad actors” to reap undue benefits at the expense of individuals and the community.

Keyphrases: Cybersecurity, cyberspace, global sustainability, purposeful systems
