These days it’s not enough to try to keep cyber-thieves and online spies out of your company’s network — there’s a good chance they’re already in. That’s the rationale behind “deception technology,” a sector of the cybersecurity business that grew out of the reality that no matter how good a firm’s “perimeter security” may be, a global army of extremely clever, morally compromised technologists is working diligently to break it.
