“How Adversaries Weaponize Ambiguity in Security Programs and What to do About it”
As technology evolves, security programs are increasingly becoming larger and more complex. Success isn’t a given when a program grows, adds new capabilities, or receives more funding. Adversaries look to increase their effectiveness by identifying gaps that exist between functional silos, technologies, and teams where deep communication, collaboration, and adequate detection doesn’t occur.
