Inception of OODA loop into the security hacker’s mind

The OODA loop (recurring cycle of observe-orient-decide-act) has become an important concept in both business and military strategy. Individuals and organizations who process this cycle quickly, observing and reacting to unfolding events more rapidly than an opponent, can thereby "get inside" the opponent's decision cycle and gain the advantage. This is not too different from the plot of the movie Inception where a thief commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. Such concepts lead me to conclude that it would be possible to think ahead of the security hackers and be prepared for the next virus so that we have the measures in place even before the virus sees the light of day.
