It's a tried and true military tradition: ISR, or Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance. But the practice is gaining traction in enterprises as well, and especially within cybersecurity, says Christopher Cleary of Tenable Network Security.
What is the compelling need for Cyber ISR?
"The concept of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance is not new. It's a concept that's been floating around the department of defense for a long time, and there are guys that spend their whole careers working in the field of ISR," says Cleary, Director of Federal Business Development at Tenable. "[But] there are a lot of military applications that eventually found their way into commercial applications, and I believe this is one of them."
In an interview about Cyber ISR, Cleary discusses:
- Why the ISR approach is now needed in organizations;
- The culture clash that currently exists in many groups;
- The tools and skills necessary for an ISR practice.
