Shawn Henry (who was America's top cyber cop at the FBI) and John Pescatore (who was America's top cyber security analyst at Gartner) debate the question of whether businesses should focus on information-sharing, identifying their adversaries and providing this information to law enforcement agencies; or whether the attacks should instead drive businesses to not waste time trying to ID their attackers (leave that to the government), but instead focus on better defending against all attacks by shoring up their defenses.
