The United States Cybersecurity culture is heavily rooted in practices of Security Theater, where an organization that suffers a data breach can invest in countermeasures that provide a feeling or sense of security without actually improving the cybersecurity threat posture of the organization.
In this publication, entitled “The Cybersecurity Show Must Go On: Surpassing Security Theatre and Minimal Compliance Regulations”, ICIT provides a brief analysis of this phenomenon to bring attention to this ineffective approach to cybersecurity and discuss its far-reaching implications.
ICIT invites readers to attend the ICIT Winter Summit (January 23, 2017; Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City) where the Nation’s top cybersecurity experts will further explore the concepts discussed in this paper.
