Target-Based Security Model – Mapping Attacks to Controls
Have you ever been asked ‘what is the best way to protect against $ATTACK’? (usually shortly after $ATTACK makes headlines). Have you ever been challenged to provide the reasoning behind your suggestion? If you were in a room full of experts, would your reasoning hold up under scrutiny?
If you were in a room full of your security-savvy peers, chances are, you’d quickly come to a consensus on the ‘best’ control (!= device) to protect against $ATTACK. But do you know WHY it’s the ‘best’?
Come join us as we formally introduce the Target-Based Security Model – essentially the Security version of the OSI model. We’ll talk about the genesis of the model, break down the specifics, and of course provide a number of use cases showing how it can be used to make the world a better place if we all agree to use it.
