Cybersecurity First Principles: intrusion kill chains.
This is part three in a series that Rick Howard, CyberWire’s Chief Analyst, is doing about building an infosec program from the ground up using a set of first principles. This episode, he talks about why intrusion kill chains are the perfect companion strategy to the passive zero trust strategy he talked about last week. The key takeaway here is that we should be trying to defeat the humans behind the campaigns collectively, not simply the tools they use independently with no context about what they are trying to accomplish.
