Cyber Defense / Security

Cyber Defense is proactively defending against all cyber threats and attacks. Cyber threats and attacks are becoming more common, sophisticated, and damaging. To stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated, stealthy and dangerous threats, defenders must move beyond traditional static defenses to exploit the natural advantages of their information technology (IT) systems and expertise. Current IT or static security response practices to these attacks, boil down to four steps: find the invading code, unplug the affected systems, create security patches to thwart specific attacks, and apply those patches network-wide.
