Secure Software
 

Obviously best defense is to build a secure software. Analytics is still basically a catch-up, we just need to re-think our software development practices and embed security while code is being written.

It is mandatory today. This is not a new topic, building knowledge to prevent from future attacks is what we do by default we just need to go beyond that and predicts attacks when there is no any predictability of it.

Machine learning in security
A great idea but should be implemented very carefully. As we just experience with Microsoft bot machine could be thought in an unexpected way and results into unintended consequences.
