In part, that's because such technology can lead to attackers lingering longer on a targeted network before they can obtain anything useful, thus giving defenders greater opportunity to not only spot the intrusion attempt, but to study attackers' latest tools and tactics, says Grillo, who's a managing director at the consultancy Alvarez & Marsal.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Cybersecurity Summit in New York, Grillo also discusses:
- Critical success factors for deploying deception technology;
- How deception tech fits into an organization's cyber resilience strategy;
