What Russell Crowe Can Teach Smaller Financial Institutions about Cybersecurity
You remember the scene: Russell Crowe as math student John Nash in the film A Beautiful Mind. Suddenly, Nash is struck with his "governing dynamics" theorem—that competitors would be far more successful if they all went after different "targets."
While most of the cybersecurity talk is focused toward large financial institutions, what governing dynamics theory tells us is that mid-size and smaller institutions are actually more attractive targets because malefactors presume that their security measures may not be as robust and they are not being pursued by other predators. Jane Pannier describes what measures to take to defend your institution. [6/10/14]
