#5 and Cyber Kill Chain success
Tracking and mitigating attacks and APT adversaries IS possible using historical data, as proven by the Cyber Kill Chain from Hutchinson, Cloppert and Dr. Amin from Lockheed Martin. Having a qualified team that partners with key industry experts such as these individuals would help any CIO mitigate many threats that they face on their network. With the proper training, supported by company management, and with the proper tool set, the Cyber Kill Chain methodology can be implemented and be a highly effective solution to mitigating the threat. Your article brings good points to light but should have contained more useful and factual data for you last point.

Re: Dispelling The Myths Of Cyber Security
Myth #5 made me LOL, but the point was well-taken: "it's probably easier to predict your spouse's mood after many years of marriage than the next attack launched by a criminal you have never met. You know nothing of the person's skills. He or she intentionally uses deceptive techniques and could be 10,000 miles away."
