Defend forward, the unclassified and publicly communicated cyber policy of the US Government that involves taking the cyber response to the adversaries, will require coordination on a number of different fronts. This session will explore a variety of improvements needed in information sharing and public/private partnerships, along with clear rules of engagement for active cyber response.
1. Increase your knowledge of the concept of defend forward, how its techniques can be used to increase the cost to a threat actor, and why that can be an important part of your cyber strategy.
2. Understand the interplay between the public and private sector in implementing a defend forward strategy.
3. Realize that active cyber response can be an important component in a defend forward strategy.
