Excellent rant Les. I agree 99.9%. "Systems security", though, has the same issue in that it hints at IT systems whereas thee and mee know better. I remain a big fan of both 'information security' and 'information risk', both of which firmly emphasise 'information' not the media or technology or whatever.

Another wrinkle is that we also need to exploit information legitimately and beneficially as well as secure or protect it from illegitimate and detrimental stuff ('threats'), which the A in CIA kind of covers. Addressing challenge of both making good use of info and securing it against harm is What I Do. YMMV.
