Often described in terms of engineering solutions, cybersecurity is far from a technical problem. It is a series a complex risk trade-offs. Just like health, safety and the environment. Yes there are tools and technologies that can and should be developed. But each one of these tools are developed by humans, used by humans and managed by humans. Plus each tool that gets introduced then influences human behavior often in unforeseen ways. This makes cybersecurity a complex adaptive system that is part of an even more complex adaptive system — the Internet itself.
