Can We Ever Beat Cyberattackers? - InterDev
At a recent security conference presentation, National Security Agency (NSA) "Hacker in Chief" Rob Joyce, used his session to explain to a group of security professionals and academics how they might keep hackers out of computer systems.
Joyce is head of the NSA's Tailored Access Operations (TAO)-the elite government hacking team that conducts nation state anti-espionage cyber operations. His advice was too lengthy to cover here in its entirety, but we can share 10 of his key points. Joyce's overall gist was this: No matter how well you think you know your network, hackers know it better.
Do You Know Whatâ€™s Running on Your Network? Hackers Do - InterDev
In an address to IT professionals and others in January at Usenix Enigma 2016, 25-year National Security Agency veteran and "professional hacker" Rob Joyce* pointed out that cybercriminals have the time, patience and skill to understand their victim's networks far better than organizational leadership-or even IT staff-does.
Speaking to IT professionals, academics and others, he said, "You know the technologies you intended to use in that network. We know the technologies that are actually in use in that network." You know the technologies you intended to use in that network. We know the technologies that are actually in use in that network. Rob Joyce Chief of TAO, National Security Agency Joyce's goal was to share strategies that would minimize the odds of network intrusion by his team of professional NSA hackers-and, for that matter, any hackers. In doing that, he explained these individuals' approaches, saying, "We will learn the security functionality of the devices inside that network.

As the Chief of TAO, Rob leads an NSA-driven effort to provide tools and expertise in computer network exploitation for harvesting foreign intelligence. We will be providing helpful excerpts from his presentation throughout the year.
White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Rob Joyce was scheduled to appear during the second day of this round of ISPAB meetings but abruptly canceled.
It would have been Joyce's first public appearance in his new position, which he only began this month. Joyce previously led the National Security Agency's network defense section.
At a session at the USENIX Enigma conference in San Francisco on Jan. 28, Rob Joyce, chief of The National Security Agency's Tailored Access Operations, discussed how advanced persistent threats target organizations.
He also discussed what techniques can be used to defend against those attacks. Joyce stressed the importance of understanding the devices and security technologies within networks in order to better understand these threats.
Challenges Ahead For New White House Cybersecurity Advisor
It appears that President Trump is poised to select Rob Joyce, currently chief of the National Security Agency's secretive Tailored Access Operations (TAO), as his cybersecurity czar.
If Joyce assumes that role, he will have some daunting challenges ahead. There are multiple issues to consider with Joyce in that role. Coming from a group that is considered mysterious even within the NSA itself makes Joyce more or less the poster child for that distrust. "Throughout his presidential campaign, Trump made it clear he was no friend to industry or individual privacy rights. Trump's appointment of Joyce can go one of two ways," suggests Ajay Arora, CEO of Vera. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Joyce will be used for good. Yoran praised the selection of Joyce. "Rob Joyce is a strong pick for White House cyber coordinator.
