Corporate communicators can become easily distracted by style and usage issues.
For example, when someone asks a usage question, I can’t let it go until I find out the answer.
This week’s distraction was the term “cyber security.” A co-worker was insisting that the term was now one word, “cybersecurity.” And indeed, I confirmed this with several dictionaries and in the AP Stylebook. “Cyber” is now considered an accepted prefix. So “cybersecurity”—like “cyberspace” or “cyberbullying”—is one word.
