Response to InfoSec X Prize Part 1
So I’ve been quite amazed by the amount of discussion and feedback i have received from colleagues and peers on my original post on creating fundamental change through competition. I will be posting some of the written replies that I received and which people have kindly consented to having me post.
Here is a response sent to me by my friend Olav Opedal with Microsoft’s Information Security group:
I believe the change has already happened, but you haven’t seen much of it translated into off the shelf products. The change that I see, is based on the use of applied mathematical solutions found in other science branches, such as using power-law distributions describing social networks to define who should have access to what along with physics heat models applied to network traffic. With this, I mean using real time multi-dimensional analysis of network traffic, user actions, content and context of transmissions etc to determine a probability of appropriateness of the actions. In other words using mathematical models to find the change point as soon as possible, and discard anomalies that has little effect on the CIA triangle. One thing that is clear, is that information must be given an economic value to enable a decision point to be set for action versus inaction.
So does all information need to be given economic value? If so, can all information be given economic value? This is an interesting train of thought to follow.
