Definition Edit

A cyber device refers to

computers; software systems, applications or services; electronic communications systems, networks, or services; and the information contained therein.[1]

Overview Edit

If cyber devices communicated in near real-time with each other about [cyber] attacks, and took coordinated securityhardening response actions consistent with a defined policy framework, then critical business, mission and privacy objectives could be better supported, and many security risks could be managed proactively and dynamically. Automated defenses could be effective at the earliest, least costly stage of the lifecycle as well as at the later stages of an attack when malicious code and other attack elements propagate at machine speed. These defenses could be effective against all threats including financial fraud, identity theft, and advanced, persistent threats that exploit unauthorized access to intellectual property and sensitive information.[2]
