Tags: Security

Summary : Abstract: Purely passive defense is arguably ineffective for most organizations. While not a replacement for traditional defense, hack-back is gaining more attention and in some markets, acceptance as a component of total cyber-defense. Hoglund covers techniques and methods that can be used for counter-insurgency and counter intelligence in cyberspace. He will discuss the international legal fabric over which offensive cyber operations can be executed. He will draw upon real world experiences and discuss how mitigative counterstrike, intelligence gathering, covert action, influence operations, and denial/disruption are applied in the context of network defense.
