When companies and institutions suffer Cyber Attacks and damage, they mostly keep quiet in the mistaken belief that they are securing reputations and gaining valuable knowledge and abilities that confer some economic or strategic advantage. In reality - everyone loses! In complete contrast, Cyber Attackers share failures and successes in a global knowledge market designed to maximise the community earnings.
Whilst the forces of good operate in almost total isolation, the bad boys work and adapt as a globally networked team. If a group, find ‘an in’ or ‘partial in’ to a bank they may motivate 500 or more helpers to help exploit the vulnerability. Their leading edge sees AI and Artificial Life used to ‘breed’ new malware and deploy multiple species variants at a time - effectively using us as their laboratory guinea pigs!
So what can we do to ensure that we, all our ‘things’ and organisations are secure? First; a good Cyber Defence demands the understanding and thinking of an experienced Cyber Attacker. Second; we have to share and learn to cooperate. Third; we have to become equally devious, dynamic and adaptable. Fourth; we have to deploy all the available defence techniques including Dynamic Clouds, Block Chains, AI and Auto Immunity.
“Cyber Warfare is without frontiers or boundaries, and we all potential targets”
“No government or company can save us and we have to become activists”
“The forces of good outnumber the bad and we can win if we change the way we operate”
