The Coming Cyber War

The Coming Cyber War:

What Executives, the Board, and You Should Know

by Marc Crudgington

Cyberspace is a vast ecosystem of intertwined technologies that brings about noble causes, but hidden in dark corners of cyberspace is a criminal element, and at times in plain sight are military operations.

The Coming Cyber War provides insight on the nuances of cyberspace, what executives, boards, and individuals can do to prepare, and what to expect next.

“I think every person, especially at the executive level, will find value in reading this book and many will find it astonishing. As Marc alludes to in the end, the challenges for CISOs are not going away and the future cyberwar, might be already going on.” -ALVIN MILLS, VP, Information Technology & Security, Texas Bankers Association

If it’s in cyber-security and technology we may discuss it.

Create Efficiencies Not Work, Return Time Not Excuses

1-10-60 Rule

Make the 1-10-60 rule work for you and close the breach to breach response gap.  The breach to breach response gap is the time a threat actor lands on your infrastructure to the time you can response.  Closing this gap to a minimal amount of time is paramount to reducing the threat actor from compromising other machines.


  • Implement solutions to detect an intrusion in under 1 minute
  • Develop processes to investigate the incident fully in under 10 minutes
  • Train your security staff to remediate in less than 60 minutes
