A 2500-year perspective on the 21st Century Cyber Battlespace.
In May of 2020, Verizon published the 2020 edition of the Verizon Data Breach Incident Report (VBIR). This report is one of the best reports that show the current state of the cybersecurity threatscape by industry, threat action, and threat actor.
The early days of Script Kiddies and Wiley Hackers exploring the limits of technological barriers are gone and have been replaced by well-funded, professional criminal organizations. These organizations can control armies of botnets consisting of tens of thousands of computers and compel them to do their evil bidding. And your home computer, television, streaming device or camera might be one of their soldiers!
- What are we doing to defend against these attacking armies? What are YOU doing to defend against them?
- State of the art tactics, techniques and procedures are necessary, but not sufficient. We must also employ strategies that have stood the test of time and proven their effectiveness.
- Understanding the 21st century’s problems, through the lens of a 2500-year-old strategic treatise will help us prevail in this ever-evolving battlespace.
