NEW YORK–The economics of cybersecurity are skewed in favor of attackers, who invest once and can launch thousands of attacks with a piece of malware or exploit kit. That’s why Neal Ziring, technical director for the NSA’s Capabilities Directorate, wants to flip the financial equation on bad guys.
“We need to conduct defenses in a way that kills an adversary’s ROI,” Ziring said. “I want to get it down to the point where a threat actor says, ‘I better choose carefully where I throw this malware first, because I’m not going to get a third or fourth try.’ Today they don’t have that concern.”
