The Uncertainty of Intelligence and the Entropy of Threats

The Uncertainty of Intelligence and the Entropy of Threats

In Part 2 of this series, we will explore the dimensions of information uncertainty, entropy and negentropy, superlinear defence-in-depth, latent space and threat intelligence as a decoding device for time-bound information.

The Threat Hunting Shift. Part 3: Adversarial Framework for Tactical Cyber Defense Operations I

The Threat Hunting Shift. Part 3: Adversarial Framework for Tactical Cyber Defense Operations I

Active Defence Adversarial Cyber Operations Framework or ADACOP, is a framework for sense-making and understanding the relationships between the different domains of active defence. ADACOP describes four tactical domains, namely: Design, Discover, Disrupt and Defend.

The Threat Hunting Shift. Part 2: The Way of the Intercepting Fist II

The Threat Hunting Shift. Part 2: The Way of the Intercepting Fist II

We discuss Active Defense, moving beyond a passive approach to detection. How can we intentionally shape threat actor behavior via Controlled Attack Paths and Cyber Deception? Defenders inadvertently influence attackers by the way they configure layered defenses, impacting attack preferences.

The Threat Hunting Shift. Part 1: The Way of the Intercepting Fist I

While Threat Hunting is commonly seen as proactive threat detection, we propose a broader approach through the lens of Active Defense. This involves intercepting and disrupting adversaries with the goal of actively shaping attacker behavior rather than relying solely on detection.

Rumsfeld's simple knowledge matrix lacks the dimension of time. The article suggests an enhanced model, accounting for time and awareness in understanding knowledge dimensions. This new approach redefines knowns, unknowns, and predictability, aiding threat detection complexity.
