Q: How does a security team take the initiative with attackers?
A: It’s worth discussing the question: “What, exactly, does it mean to have the initiative?” If you are waiting on your adversary to do something, at which point you will respond, you do not have the initiative. If you are building static defenses to protect yourself and your key assets, you still do not have the initiative. To have the initiative, you must be actively creating the scenarios where you intend to draw-in your adversaries and demolish them. Once they make contact with your network, if they are responding to your tripwires and traps, or are being unknowingly mined for intelligence, then you have the initiative. This is an active defense.
