Competing Innovations in Cyber

I have had a series of productive discussions with a colleague over the last year about the differences in adopting new innovations between cyber attackers and cyber defenders. His interesting, and itself innovative, contention is that a key problem in cyber security is created by the differently shaped innovation adoption curves between defenders and attackers. Also that by investing in changing the shape of defenders adoption curves the nature of the competition itself will be re-shaped. (I suspect I am doing my colleague something of a disservice with my summary).
