“I could certainly see hack back (or at least the threat of hack back) being a deterrent, and it would bring additional resources and expertise into the fight. I could also see this quickly spiraling out of control and causing collateral damage and further cyber escalation if it is not well regulated and coordinated,” said Chris Kubic, current CISO of Fidelis Cybersecurity and former CISO of the NSA.
