The ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu said “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” While it’s unrealistic to think we can win every battle against cyber criminals, Sun Tzu’s words have a lot to offer. The problem that every privacy and security team faces is how to defend on every possible front with finite resources and budget. And the simple answer is, you don’t have to.

The majority of cyber crime is financially motivated. Even state-sponsored attackers want to please their sponsors. If you understand the business model of cyber attackers, you can anticipate how and where they’re likely to attack your organization. If you understand which of your information and systems are most at risk, you can spend your budget and resources on the most effective defense.

In this eBook you’ll learn about:

  • The economics of cyber crime
