How to Literally Think Like an Attacker to Become a Better Defender

By Eric Groce, Red Canary Incident Handler

For years, defenders have been educating themselves on the tradecraft being used by adversaries. At the same time, defenders continue to lose the battle, even when armed with some of the greatest talent and technologies in the world. Why is this? This talk will examine why technology alone is not helping close the gap and explain the importance that our own minds play in the role of defense.

Attendees will learn:

• Key similarities between defenders and attackers

• How to avoid counterfactual thinking that focuses on past negative events

• The role our thoughts play in behavior and outcomes

• Strategies for adopting a new forward-looking mindset that instills ownership, pride, and confidence
