We’ve often heard that it’s a good idea to approach and counter cyber threats by having an understanding for how the adversary thinks. Rick Howard, CSO for Palo Alto Networks, takes this concept to the next level with what he describes as the "adversary playbook;” a concept he applies to his own information security program. During his chat with ITSPmagazine’s Sean Martin, Rick categorizes the various types of cybercrime and the 6 steps criminals take to commit the crimes. Rick also shares a personal view into how he entered the field of information security, citing the Morris Worm and a book called the Cuckoo’s Egg as two key drivers behind his decision to help fight cybercrime.
