Re: Report timing
@Kelly_Jackson_Higgins You are exactly correct, the breach is unsettling.  The fact that one of the largest companies within the most information security savvy sector was breached, and massively so, should be disturbing.  Attackers are pumping more money into finding new exploits than we are into new defenses.  I expect it will get worse before it gets better.

Re: Report timing
The DDoS attack wave was one thing, but an actual breach at a financial institution as in the case of JPM is unsettling. The financial services industry is the gold standard in security and has one of the most effective and powerful threat intel-sharing ISACs. I would be the industry is reassessing and becoming more vigilant now.

Report timing
I'm not surpised about the concern in the financial industry, giiven the timing of the 3Q report in relation to the JPMorgan breach. It will be interesting to see if cyberattacks continue to rank high if there isn't another high profile financial services breach in the near future.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
