"Attackers can be in an out of your environment in 12 hours. Deception is able to put traps and lures into the network in attract the attackers inside the network into engaging so that defenders can quickly shut them down," she says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Crandall discusses:

  • Going beyond deflection to pick up tactics, techniques and procedures and indicators of compromise;
  • Recommendations for implementing deception capabilities;
  • Innovations and developments in deception.
