When it Comes to Cyber-Security, The Best Defence is Not a Good Offence



A panel of experts at the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2) Security Congress’ 2013 event debated the issue of cyber-offensive strategies on Sept. 27. The panel concluded that offensive strategies aren’t likely the right approach for most, if not all, enterprise IT shops.

The concept behind the panel was to talk about whether it made sense for enterprises to go vigilante against cyber-threats, Adam Meyers, vice president of intelligence at security vendor CrowdStrike, explained. Vigilantism is unlikely to ultimately be successful, he said, adding that enterprises don’t need to focus on how to get back at an attacker, he said.

“What enterprises need to do is focus on delivering security that is effective,” Meyers told eWEEK. “The way you make it effective is by knowing who is coming after you, how they are coming after you and what they are going to use against you.”
