Abstract:

In order to defend our mission critical systems, we must establish a defense in depth that allows us to observe and defeat threats well beyond the boundaries of our network. The obvious parallels between choke points and lines of communication in the sea and in cyberspace provide a foundation for applying maritime strategies to cyber operations. Following Julian Corbetts theories, a cyber fleet in being is capable of nimbly conducting defensive operations that disrupt and deny the adversary long before he can attack.
