1.3 Offensive

The offensive has different plays that it can run such as distributed denial of service (DDos) attacks, phishing and spear phishing, malware, social engineering, software and hardware flaws, and insider threat. We’ll be calling the offensive “bad actors” or “hackers” throughout this article.
