War and business are becoming more mental and less physical. Therefore, human intellect plays an ever greater role in competition—making Sun Tzu’s strategies highly relevant to the information age. The Art of War is a guide for preparing so well for competition that one’s organizational strength and focus awes the enemy into giving up without a fight. In this session we will:
*Consider the history of attacks
*Look at the patterns that are now emerging with frequent targeted attack
*Introduce security programs as an alternative to defensive and reactive tactics.
