Predictive Security: The Best Offense Is A Good Defense

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before…prioritizing compliance based security leaves gaps in your network, but prioritizing effective protection can often leave you short of compliance goals. How do agencies strike the balance? Is government moving effectively towards predictive security approaches that can improve both compliance and defense? What role does the evolving CDM program play when it comes to using Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) data for effective security? Where do security intelligence and cognitive capabilities play into this challenge? How can clarification of defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches help? Is there a silver bullet to help agencies meet both requirements?
