Three (Totally Legal) Strategies for ‘Fighting Back’ Against Cybercriminals

by Susan Brown on March 1, 2012

The idea of ‘fighting back’ against hackers is both scary and risky business. Most security professionals would strongly advise against it, in part because one false move could land you behind bars. But ‘fighting back’ doesn’t have to translate into attacking an attacker’s IP address, setting up lethal traps for hackers, or purposely damaging systems--it’s about defending your own networks, while working to identify and gather evidence of the attack and attackers. Tenable’s Paul Asadoorian will be presenting alongside John Strand, Senior Instructor with the SANS Institute, on this topic at RSA today, March 1, 2012. They’ll share practical advice on how to responsibly integrate offensive measures into your network security strategies. They’ll also cover legal considerations, relevant case studies of people and organizations that strategically (and legally) fought back, sensible techniques, and strategies for determining if offensive countermeasures are right for you.
