The emerging approach uses code to lure hackers, slow their progress and ultimately trap them.Cutting-edge security pros are tapping into a new method of attracting and then miring would-be cyberattackers amid ongoing efforts to safeguard health information: deception networks. A deception network appears real and behaves normally, except it toys with intruders, making them aware that one wrong move will get them immediately expelled, thus simultaneously slowing cybercriminals nefarious activity and making them easier to catch. The technique essentially involves little bits of code placed at strategic points throughout a network.
