First Principles for Network Defenders

Published By: Palo Alto Networks     Published Date: Dec 02, 2016
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them.

When On- the-Job Training Is a Recipe for Disaster

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Sep 14, 2015
In the running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you can’t afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide “teachable moments” for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders. It borrows from education theory and online gaming to present knowledge in ways that motivate learning a

BDA White Paper

Motivated by the notoriety and the knowledge gained by the discovery and publicizing of new vulnerabilities, attackers continued to innovate. What ensued were distinct threat cycles, an “arms race,” so to speak. Approximately every five years attackers would launch new types of threats— from macroviruses to worms to spyware and rootkits—and defenders would quickly innovate to protect networks from them.

First Principles for Network Defenders: A Unified Theory for Security Practiioners

Published By: Palo Alto Networks     Published Date: Sep 30, 2016
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them. They are atomic. Experts use them like building blocks to derive everything else that is worth knowing in the problem domain. In this paper, I propose that the first principle for all network defenders is to prevent high-risk material impact to the organization.
