Thinking 1nside-the-B0x: Cyber Defense and Deterrence via How Hackers Think - Lieutenant Colonel Ernest Y. Wong (ANYCon 2017 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Thinking 1nside-the-B0x: Cyber Defense and Deterrence via How Hackers Think
Lieutenant Colonel Ernest Y. Wong

ANYCon 2017

Since our Republic?s origins, Americans have demonstrated a speculative knack and considerable optimism that have translated into innovative solutions for grappling problems. From the first English colonists to today?s NASA astronauts, Americans have a proud history of discovering new ways for getting the job done. Today innovation has become a buzzword in the US Army, and it is helping to shape the vision for the Army of 2025 and Beyond as an agile organization for a complex world. But does the US Army have the capabilities needed to protect vital national interests in cyber? Does the US Army know how to foster innovations that can keep pace with disruptive cyber attacks? The Internet?s growth in our globally connected world has meant that the tools within the cyber domain are constantly changing. To make matters worse, many believe the US Army is such an unwieldy bureaucracy that it can?t adapt to win tomorrow?s wars. So does the US Army have the capacity to out-hack those attacking us in the digital terrain? This presentation provides a framework for analyzing different types of innovation, and in doing so, asks us to think inside-the-box to promote better ways the US Army can defend and deter against attacks inside cyberspace.

Lieutenant Colonel Ernest Y. Wong is a Military Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Army who is currently serving both as the Chief of Staff at the Army Cyber Institute and as an Assistant Professor with the Department of Systems Engineering at West Point. He graduated from the United States Military Academy with a B.S. in economics, and he holds a M.S. in management science and engineering from Stanford University, a M.A. in education from Stanford University, and a Master of Military Science from the Mubarak al-Abdullah Joint Command and Staff College in Kuwait. He had the opportunity to work as a NASA Summer Faculty Fellow and has served in overseas deployments to Iraq, Kuwait, and the Republic of Korea. His research interests include disruptive innovations, cyber resiliency, and the application of systems engineering tools for resolving complex real-world problems.
