US Department of Defense Takes Offensive in Cyberwar

US Department of Defense Takes Offensive in Cyberwar

Even though it’s unlikely the Department of Defense (DoD) read my new book before putting together their plan, I can at least say it’s an example of great minds thinking alike. The DoD recently announced that they are taking an offensive stance in the global Cyberwar, essentially following the motto “a good offense is the best defense.” I recommended this offensive approach in the chapter Cybersecurity the Agile Architecture Way starting on page 125 of The Agile Architecture Revolution. Kudos to the DoD!

As I point out in the book, taking a reactive approach to Cybersecurity always puts you one step behind the hackers. After all, good hackers seek zero-day attacks — attacks that nobody has seen before. Sure, it’s possible to defend against such attacks eventually, but only after they do some damage. A better approach is to go after the hackers before they attack. Sure, easier said than done, but taking an Agile Architecture approach to Cybersecurity gives you a leg up. Want to learn more?
