Security Through Soundbyte: The 'Cybersecurity Intelligence' Game

Richard Forno
Essay #2002-12

Some say that cyberspace is the new battlefield, with its own unique
rules, challenges, and concerns for those charged with defending it.  If
one does consider cyberspace a modern battlefield, intelligence must
naturally play a key role in developing appropriate, proactive defenses.

that "what is called foreknowledge cannot be elicited from spirits, nor
from gods, nor by analog with past events, nor from calculations. It

provider" providing research, assessment, and analysis services on the
state of the cybersecurity.   

As a security professional - and someone 'on the front lines' of the
cyberspace battlefield - I'm both curious and dubious about the whole
'cybersecurity intelligence' business concept, and wonder what it takes
to both become a 'cybersecurity intelligence' expert and make money at
it, too.
