Depending on the study you site, attacker exist on our networks for nearly seven months before detection, which is often the result of third-party notification. Unfortunately, there is a direct relationship between the cost of a breach and the time it takes to detect and respond meaning the longer it takes to address a breach, the more that breach costs. The obvious question thus becomes how can we reduce the time it takes to detect and effectively respond to attackers on our networks? There are many possible answers. Among the best - we need to start lying. Cyber deception has been shown to dramatically reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to attacks from months to days (possibly minutes). So what is cyber deception? How does it fit into an organizational security posture? Isn't cyber deception just honeypots? Join this talk and learn how you can take back the advantage.
