Because if you don't, who will?

When your adversary makes a mistake…

There is a perception that cyber criminals and nation state hackers are untouchable, and that hacking or cybercrime is low risk to the attacker. While this may be true in some cases, we have seen more and more hackers caught and sentenced for their digital crimes. It has become very apparent that if you commit a digital crime, you have a pretty good chance of ending up in a physical prison cell.

How do we capture these criminals? Just like in real life, we look for their mistakes. Whether it is sharing pictures on Facebook, or forgetting to login to an anonymizing service, these digital desperados are just people, and eventually everyone will have a slip up.

Napoleon said it well, “Never interrupt an enemy making a mistake.” We need to be patient and vigilant, because eventually our adversaries will make a mistake and we need to be ready for it.

That is all for now. Happy hacking!
