A countermeasure is any action taken to offset or neutralize another action. Countermeasures differ from solutions because they suggest precise, tactical ongoing trial and error as opposed to a one-time, permanent fix. If a countermeasure is determined to be ineffective, another one can be developed and tested. Countermeasures are developed once a root cause has been verified.
