Cyber Security

Operating in the Dark: Cyber Decision-Making from First Principles

Abstract:

The future of cyber conflict will present an uncertain, insecure, and rapidly changing environment. Cyber security will prove to be increasingly important for the defence community, and cyber literacy will be necessary for an increasing number of decision-makers. To continue to achieve its mission, the defence community should rally around a doctrinal set of first principles.

Integrating Cyber-Intelligence Analysis and Active Cyber-Defence Operations

Abstract:

The world is experiencing a continuous state of cyber insecurity. Despite continual development of cyber-security technology, the power balance between attacker and network defender has remained largely unchanged. While the cyber-security community is attempting to change this stalemate by developing active cyber-defence tactics and emphasizing cyber-threat intelligence, these efforts remain incomplete. A synthesis of the Diamond Model of Intrusion Analysis  and  Robert  Lee’s  Active  Cyber  Defense  Cycle  will  demonstrate  that  integrating structured intelligence-analysis techniques into active cyber-defence operations has the potential to alter the power balance between attacker and defender.
