cybersecurity

noun; compounding
A department that has the duty of providing safety for users of networking. “Cyberspace” has consistently been shortened to “cyber” as more technology develops and people become more familiar with computer terms. Now that a new department of security has been formed specifically for cyberspace, the department has taken on a very fitting, novel name—“cybersecurity.”
 
The government’s cybersecurity chief resigned from the Homeland Security Department.
Etymology : cybersecurity. Clipping/Compounding: formed from ‘cyberspace’ + ‘security’
