Owning the consequences
One of the reasons breaches is getting increased exponentially is simply because there is no consequences to the person who did the breach and/or person who did not do his/her job and that caused the breach. We constantly talk about it but it is hard to locate who are responsible.

Re: Motive
"Attribution takes a long time, a lot of work, and a healthy dose of luck. But is it worth the effort?"

It certainly is! However, this is a secondary priority of the incident response. There is value in a successful attribution, as it adds threat intelligence that can be used in IT security strategies.

Re: Motive
That would be valuable Chris but how would you know that your information was correct?  Having the wrong information can draw incorrect conclusions and solutions.

Rod Sirling was right.
"My sources believe it's an alien plot to study human behavior."

Credit is due to Rod Sirling and "The Twilight Zone" that disclosed the alien plot years ago!  ;-)

Isn't knowing who attacked important for the prevention piece -- from stopping an attack from happening again?

Re: Funny
LOL. If aliens could figure out the human behavior behind cyberattacks, I hope they will share it with infosec so we can figure out how to better defend against them.
