Exam Info

As the Enemy, how would you attack a target? To be able to complete the puzzle, this is important to understand how to protect that target from the “bad guys”. We live in an increasingly interconnected world with almost everything in our lives connected to a communications network. Everything connected to that network is a potential opening for the ne’re-do wells to attack, steel and destroy. Here is the knowledge of how those who wish to do harm could penetrate our fortress, and pillage. As Sun Tzu said in his famous “The Art Of War”: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
