Mitigating Cyber Risks: Four real world practitioners exchange views at OODAcon
The opportunities presented to us by the widespread, interconnected digital technology of cyberspace come with costs, including the enablement of crime and espionage.
Today every sector of the economy and every government and every citizen is under almost constant cyber attack. Most are suffering ongoing infections with malware. Attackers get in fast and remain undetected for months.
Defenders have learned a great deal about the modern cyber threat, including the types of organizations that cause the most damage, how they are resourced, how they operate, and what their motivations are. And we have learned best practices and ways to raise defenses that make it much much harder for adversaries to win. Risk can be mitigated. But we have also learned that attackers will be persistent and will surprise us now matter how strong our defenses are.
