Goal Oriented Defense
Adversaries only have to find one flaw in our defense in order to get in. And they do – consistently. Even with our modern tools, better skilled personnel and board-level awareness, we fail to detect that our environments are breached in a timely fashion. Time for a new mindset: our adversaries have goals in mind while they breach our environment. What if our detection mechanisms would be focusing on those goals?

Enter Goal Oriented Defense. Instead of trying to detect everything, let’s have a look at how Goal Oriented Defense could look like and how it will help you into tuning your detection and focusing on what’s important.
