Event: Tech Talk Series: The Cyber Maginot Line Conundrum
Date: January 19, 2021 | 1 – 2pm
The predominant cyber defense strategy (a layered stack of COTS) is inadequate. APTs are neither deterred nor reliably denied access to critical IT systems. These layered stacks are effectively cyber Maginot Lines which APTs have no difficulty bypassing. If a stack is not a strategy, then what is an effective strategy to deter adversary aggression in a live cyberconflict in which civilians and allies are part of theatre?
This talk discusses deterrence by denial in the cyber domain, and the strategy, technology and the instruments of power required to achieve it.
