Chess and poker are often used as metaphors to describe the state of cybersecurity strategies. But which game explains it the best? And how does one play it?
As a chess player, you deal with the pieces out in the open and use raw intelligence to anticipate your opponent’s next moves, then navigate across the board accordingly. The better players can think four to eight moves ahead, whereas the novice typically focuses on the next two moves. The game is asymmetrical in nature, and you only win by outsmarting your opponent.
