cyber as a means of theft-by-abuse in addition to theft-by-breach
Thanks for the post David.

You highlight an important and overlooked aspect of cyber - that there is a lot to be gained by simply *abusing* existing processes.

Effective business processes should also be checking that 'correct behavior' and *only* 'correct behavior' is occurring in the normal course of a process operating, not simply checking for a limited set of bad behaviors (invalid dollar amounts, overdrafts, failed logins, etc).

Looking forward to seeing more content from you on DarkReading!
