Careful Design of Network and System Security Architecture Can Substantially Enhance Security. Detection & Response are often positioned as competing with Isolation & Prevention. While these classes of security solutions often approach the problem in radically different ways, there can be synergies which allow them to significantly reinforce each other.

The OODA loop is a well established concept often used in security which originated in the military. OODA stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.
OODA is an iterative process because after each action you need to observe your results and any new opposing action. The idea is that if you can consistently get to the action faster than your opponent you can beat them. It is typically described using an airplane dogfight analogy – airplanes try to turn more quickly and sharply than their opponent in order to get off a shot. But, as you turn faster and faster the g-forces build and at this point the ever faster OODA loop is more like a centrifuge crushing us. We need to break out of the loop and find a new way to play the security game.
