Deception is the most successful strategy in military history. Just as armies used deceit to conquer continents, cyber-deception is being used by more and more organizations to exploit a hacker's greatest weakness - being a human, after all, behind a keyboard. Deception techniques such as honeypots are not a new. But new techniques and capabilities are delivering new approaches to how cyberthreats are dealt with, proactively. During this session, we will deconstruct recent attacks from a hacker's perspective and show how you can use deception technology to detect stealthy attacks, illuminate network blind spots and minimize breach detection time - highlighting the benefits of deception defenses. But what about when these techniques don't work as planned? Can deception technology actually create more problems long-term? We will explore the positives and negatives of deception technology.
