Precognition (from the Latin præ-, "before" and cognitio, "acquiring knowledge"), also called future sight, and second sight, is an alleged psychic ability to see events in the future.
Defined as a systematic way to build and organize knowledge from historical data in order to predict (forecast) future events before they occur.
Three pillars of PREDICT, PREVENT, and PERSIST comprise a framework that can quickly be made actionable and operational.
Provides decision-makers with a range of options for taking action to proactively suppress threats.
Predict (Situational Awareness)
- Threat Intel/Threat forecasting (Big Data Analytics)
- Sources and methods (People and Machine)
- Behavior modeling (Cyber Psychology)
- The application of traditional Intel in cyberspace (Leverage Historical Perspectives)
- Sensors feeding into a visual aid (SEM, SIEM)
Prevent (Active Threat Management Solutions)
- Know what new solutions will best protect your network against malicious activity
- Select and deploy the most efficient and cost effective threat defense technologies
- Combine solutions that will provide real-time protection (monitor and detect), as well as security event analysis and incident response
- Implement “lean forward” technologies from at least two of the three architecture framework layers: (1) network (2) payload (3) endpoint
Persist (Continuous Monitoring)
- Discipline and vigilance
- Policies, processes, and practices
- Patching holes and bridging gaps
- Vulnerability assessments
- Penetration testing
- Secure code review
- Security awareness training
