Today on Excelsior Commentary, Dr. Sherly Abraham discusses why the cybersecurity realm is like a cat-and-mouse game.
The security community has been so accustomed to reacting to incidents. For example, we discover a malware in the wild, and then develop a signature for it which is then pushed to anti-virus software. How about we invest our efforts even more towards proactively discovering exploits before they are discovered by hackers? This will tremendously assist in staying ahead of the game. In other words, security professionals need to be trained to think like hackers. To add, cybersecurity educational curriculums need to emphasize the importance of defensive and offensive strategies.
