OODA Security: Taking Back the Advantage

  • Kevin Fiscus
  • Wednesday, February 6th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

OODA, or Observe, Orient, Decide and Act is a concept first developed for fighter pilots. The concept states that the adversary who can effectively complete the OODA cycle first will go home while the adversary who takes longer enjoys, at best, a long, slow parachute ride to the ground. This concept can be applied to information security. In theory, we defenders should have the advantage as it is our "house" the attackers are attacking. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. Over 50% of organizations find out they have been compromised via notification by a third party meaning that all too often defenders don't even start their OODA loop until after the attacker has completed the compromise. Making things worse, traditional security controls are failing us because attackers already know how to circumvent or evade them. Fortunately, there is a solution. By making better use of our existing technology and by using some of the attackers tools and techniques against them, we can take to deter, distract, delay, disrupt and detect attackers. Come learn how we can turn the tables on the bad guys and reclaim the OODA loop initiative.
