Discover the definition of the term Ooda (Loop) presented by Les Assises de la Cybersécurité.


The concept of the OODA loop (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) was invented in 1960 by American fighter pilot John Boyle (also one of the fathers of the F16 fighter). He modeled the sequence of actions that, according to him, allows you to “think and act faster than the adversary” and achieve victory. This approach has since been adapted to the world of economics and recently taken up in the field of cybersecurity, particularly in the context of incident response. The dynamic nature of incident response and the presence of an adversary to counter lends itself perfectly to such an approach.

And now, you won’t be able to see an “incident responder” without imagining him jumping around in a yellow suit singing “Huba huba Loop”!
