Webinar | Cyber Deception: Addressing the Demand Side of Cybersecurity

May 12

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Cyber and National Security Programs Webinar Series 2020-2021

Over the last 40 years, traditional computer security has not properly examined cyberspace as an economic model, the security of which is driven by forces of supply and demand. To date, cyber defenders have focused only on limiting supply (or decreasing the availability) of intellectual property, financial data, and other cyber resources by improving cyber protections. Our adversaries know that collecting data via cyber methods (versus collection via HUMINT or SIGINT) is a cheap, risk adverse, and resilient approach.

What to do? In our webinar, we will discuss the need to instead focus on our adversaries’ demand signal, with the goal of decreasing demand. Cyber deception is one of the few approaches that can effectively drive down the ROI of cyber collection programs. As such, we will discuss, among other things: the current issues preventing CTI programs from expanding their focus; shifting traditional INFOSEC thinking and paradigms; establishing cyber deception operations; and sharing among a coalition of the willing, so that organizations can not only protect their data, but also their business from today’s cyber-threats.
