re: Companies See Business In 'Doxing' The Adversary
It's great to see increased adoption of the bigger picture. Greg is absolutely right when he says, "The best information to have is how they are infiltrating your network, what the best intrusion-detection signatures are to detect them next time, and how to prevent them from succeeding."

It's not really about doxing. As human beings, the attackers display patterns.The value is in cataloging the methodologies, habits, and tools each attacker (or group) uses so you can hunt for Indicators of Compromise. Identify a breach in progress early on and kick them out before they achieve their goals.

Very interesting. Having this kind of intelligence on attackers could be useful in particular for critical infrastructure companies.-

re: Companies See Business In 'Doxing' The Adversary
Good article about an emerging space. I don't know much about crowdstrike because they are new, but HBGary and Mandiant have been in the game for years. BTW, Hoglund was HBGary - I noticed you kept calling it Mantech CSI but I assume that is because of the recent merger. Crowdstrike has some big names, but TBH I don't know what they are actually doing or selling yet :-/ I'm sure all three companies are good at this. Mandiant has the widest IR coverage - something that helps them track APT groups using statistics from their services work. HBGary is probably the most hardcore - hacking the CNC servers and dropping rootkits on Chinese hackers. God knows what kind of information they have. It's good that security companies are willing to fight back. It's about time that hackers don't get a free lunch and walk over our networks here in the U.S. G we all know the US Government won't fix it so I say yeah for private enterprise. Screw the hackers, they donGt get to own the Internet anymore.--
