Title

The Interdisciplinary Impacts of Technology Semantics and Communicational Bypassing in the Cybersecurity Field

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

An undeniable challenge exists within the intersection of the communication and technology fields, particularly in the cybersecurity industry. The implications of this are vast, contributing to social, legal, and ethical dilemmas. A primary contributory factor to such issues lies in semantics and communicational bypassing, which refer to challenges in understanding and interpreting the meaning of words and communication exchanges. These factors call for an interdisciplinary application to growing obstacles of interpreting communications in the cybersecurity field. Scholar William Haney proposed paraphrasing, approachability, sensitivity to contexts, and taking a people-minded, not word-minded approach to be 4 key mechanisms to avoid communicational bypassing challenges. This presentation will utilize Haney’s strategies to address the impact and role of semantics and bypassing, practical applications to address previous issues seen with them in the cybersecurity field, and an interdisciplinary case study application of the topics.
