Best answer

Security vs. safety.

Security: Protection of a system against deliberate external attacks and threats.

Safety: Protection of the users of a system from unintended risks.

The key difference here is that while security is protection from external attacks, safety is almost purely an internal affair. It is clear that security being mostly external in nature has a broader coverage.

Safety cannot be achieved if security is not guaranteed.

This is what makes it more challenging than safety.
