Enterprises Turn to Intelligence Gathering to get one over on Attackers

Writing for Defence Online, Carolyn Crandall, Chief Deception Officer at Attivo Networks, looks at the importance in intelligence gathering to combat the threat of cyber attackers.

Throughout military history, armies have used deception as a tactic for defending against a hostile force. It has the benefits of wrong-footing the enemy into wasting time and resources, trying to gain a false prize, which has no value. At the same time, it forces them to reveal their hand in the process. Observing how the enemy responds to when exposed to decoys gives defenders a clear understanding of the assailant’s tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). The lessons learned prepare them to repel future attacks better.
