Ten years ago Ms. Cushing wrote an article for a trade publication on striking the right strategic and tactical balance between offensive and defensive cyber capabilities. A key phrase from the piece, "defense informed by offense," is still gaining currency today. Many of the issues from a decade ago remain.
