Re: Cybersecurity Trade Offs
Kishore, well, classically many counterintelligence measures are also used for intelligence gathering and creative artists often use pirates as ill-paid marketers. Stranger things have happened!

Re: Cybersecurity Trade Offs
@JohnBarnes: Agreement is so rare these days so kudos for the rare ability to do so. The military and wars actually pay back with commercial technologies. I am wondering whether cybersecurity investments will have a similar payoff.

Re: Cybersecurity Trade Offs
Kishore,

We seem to have a knack for agreeing vigorously with each other. Yes, absolutely, maintaining the security equilibrium where it is will cost more in coming years, as the arms race between bad guys and good guys heats up and expands. I think, though, that figuring out how to live with constant non-total breaches -- by having recovery methods in place and damage limiting procedures behind our defenses -- will be a rising cost, as well, and might be a good place for companies trying to get ahead on the security issues to invest in; assume you will be penetrated and exploited and figure out what you'll do in advance (as much as that is possible). Another coming thing (and something else that will require more money, time, effort, and skill than anybody actually has ...)

Re: Cybersecurity Trade Offs
@John Barnes: For sure, it will be an imperfect world. The point I was making was it takes continuous effort to remain even at that imperfect equilibrium and not slide into chaos. It has become increasingly difficult with a tsunami of software in the marketplace.

Re: Cybersecurity Trade Offs
Kishore,

Exactly my point. We live with wars and disease -- we don't solve them permanently and we don't avoid them completely.  (The only possible static equilibrium would be if somehow our world could abolish war or our immune system abolish disease).  Instead, we have elaborate procedures and contact networks for restoring a semblance of peace and then trying to make it more than a semblance; we have an enormous variety of defenses in depth against infection.  And yet armed people fight each other for causes or goverments every day, and our bodies are always carrying around some cells that would kill us if they got out of hand.  So we learn to live with imperfect protection.

I don't quite know how to envision it, but I think eventually we will learn to live with always-compromised  (but not totally destroyed) security.

Re: Cybersecurity Trade-Offs
One has to wonder if there will be a groundbreaking technology which will allow us to better manage cybersecurity. 

I know it is not here yet, but applied AI towards this issue might be something of use. I'm sure many governments are already looking deeply into this.

@Freehe: Testing at every level must be tedious and time-consuming. What do you learn from testing in these hidden places that others overlook?

Data Analysis
"....we should be able to correlate it with other edge network data to develop an end-to-end view of security threats, while still benefitting from separation of concerns at the edge."

Allow AI provides many benefits there is still some uncertainty about how to address security concerns. Windstream is not completely sure if they will be able to correlate data to develop extensive views regarding security risks.

AI
Threat intelligence is great to combat cybersecurity threats. This will help to greatly reduce cybersecurity attacks and data breaches which are a huge problem in the U.S. across all industries. Be allowing heat maps to identity risks will now allow companies to be proactive when mitigating risks. Hopefully companies have the budget to use threat intelligence and its features.

Botnets Are Horrible
Wow. I didn't know the companies can rent botnets to perform an attack. That is horrible. That explains why there has been a huge increase in cybersecurity attacks and data breaches. It is great the this is a known threat. Awareness is the first step. Then companies can develop a strategy to address it.
