Dealing with the cyber threat is a complex challenge. Much of the current focus is on protection and compliance, as organizations – subject to increasing amounts of legislative, corporate and regulatory requirements – demonstrate they are managing and protecting information appropriately.
The Information Security landscape is constantly evolving. Private and public sector organizations find it difficult to believe they could be a target for cyber attacks. This mindset needs to change – as the best offence is a good defense. At the same time, it is no longer viable to rely on defense. The determined adversary will get through eventually. As a result, public and private sector entities must know what is going on around them so that they can identify when an attack has taken place or when an attack is imminent. Intelligence and the insight that it brings is at the heart of next generation of Information Security.
