Do you really know your enemy?

As a defender, the ability to define and understand a threat agent’s core motivations for attacks is critical. It helps indicate the nature of the harmful action and allows you to design highly-tailored defense plans to mitigate threats. Understanding a threat agent’s motivation helps:

 

·       Narrow the targets an agent may focus on.

·       Defenders focus on the most likely attack scenarios.

·       Shape the intensity and persistence of an attack.

·       Describe threat and risk scenarios in less technical terms.
