Looking to RSA Conference 2016: Network Visibility for Precrime, Incrime, Postcrime

Following up on my previous blog on network visibility, I want to distinguish pre-crime, in-crime and post-crime network-based cybercrime.

Pre-crime is like someone visiting you at home with an unexpected knock on your door. You: "Who's there?" Them: "Oh, I'm just here to pick up a package". You: "Not me. I didn't request that". Them: "Sorry, must be the wrong address." (They're thinking: "OK, this house is occupied, better not burgle them".)

Looking to RSA Conference 2016: Network Visibility

I’m looking forward to RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco, and although I’m a networking analyst focused on core networking technologies, we must also be aware that networking is a critical component of security.  

For the same reason that you don’t want a security guard with really bad eyesight, you want good visibility in the network to understand what is going on. Obviously they often feed into other tools to provide detailed insight, but accessing the network packets is where it starts.
