Hackers have similar traits to intelligence operatives, both are intelligent, patient, skilled in their craft and very aware of their surroundings. However, the odds are always in the favor of hackers, they need to only win once out of numerous attempts. Organizations, on the other hand, are understaffed, underbudgeted, have tight deadlines and employ individuals who often lack the skillsets to defend the organization. Worst of all, the organization must always win. How are organizations to compete? This talk will cover the hacker methodology, organization weaknesses and the benefits of championing inexpensive and effective education programs for their employees.
