The Net Defender’s Long March

In my experience, activities in the spring, especially the month of March, set the tone for network defense efforts for the coming months. I’ve patterned this poem after a military classic: the Long March. I hope the Incident Response community finds this both enjoyable and encouraging.

The Net Defender’s Long March

The Net Defender fears not the tempo of the Long March
Esteeming as routine the perennial surge
Waves of spear phishes are swatted like gnats
And more zero days are revealed, streams of bytes
Ardent are the intruders in assaying the defenses for an unmitigated vector
Tepid are the vendors in acknowledging and remediating vulnerabilities
Long hours are joyfully passed in forensic analysis
The Defenders unite to share intel, each heart resolute
