Intelligence-driven computer network defense (CND) and the cyber kill chain (CKC) is a risk management strategy developed by Lockheed Martin as a framework for understanding and defeating cyber attacks. Similarly as in the cyber realm, spiritual attacks occur daily against the system known as our mind, heart and soul. In this talk, Eric will describe use of intelligence-driven CND and intrusion kill chains in current-day cyber defense, and draw parallels that could be used for defending against compromise of those systems which we consider most important to us.
