Summary : The deployment of sensors is complete. Content filtering is interrogating encrypted channels. Next generation firewalls are tuned. Table top exercises are scheduled. Daily metrics are tracked and reported. Yet our defenses are like the bloodied, battered and bruised boxer who bobs and weaves trying to anticipate the adversary’s moves, but never throws a punch. The best defense is an aggressive and targeted program based on real intelligence — a program to engage the adversary. This talk discusses building an effective cyber intelligence program that supports the business producing preferred outcomes, and applying in-depth, substantive expertise and tough-minded tradecraft.
