Altering the actions of an attacker
Cyber deception is being added to more defensive toolkits for the simple reason that it works, writes Attivo Networks A/NZ regional director Jim Cook.
There’s a trend in cyber defence to ‘fight fire with fire,’ and to do this, you must come equipped with knowledge of not only yourself but also that of your enemy to control the outcomes.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle,” says Sun Tsu.
