    Based on the info that you provide, the table seems to say the opposite. Seems Safety and Security are transposed in the table.

    I would like to indicate that comparative table is mistaken. characteristics are in wrong rows. Just check and you will see it.

    Safety is related with managing the uncertain incident to accident thereby minimising the hazard and pulling down the mishap whereas security is to manage the uncertain attacks to exploits thereby minimising the threat and pulling down the risk. Safety is focused on omissions of one self and security is focused on act of commissions of others

    Jecinta Morgan,
    Thank you for such a good elaboration.
    There is a need for changing the colour in the table of difference at the end. Otherwise its a nice job done.

    Safety is a cluster of dependent states due to accidents from incidents whereas security is the set of actions taken before and after any event .
    Non Safety leads to mishaps where as unsecured actions leads to risks
    Safety can be measured from the likelihood of a states covering stability, certainty and harm free before the accident but security is the set of actions focusing confidentiality , integrity and availability of any entity during execution.

    Yes a very nice article with well educative ideas but in simple term security is inactive measures while safety is proactive measures. Thanks

    Security refers to a man made situation while safety refers to a nature based situation.
    example: fire, flood, earthquake, refers to safety.
    Firing, bomb, VBIED, BBIED refers to security.
