Re: Decision to use cloud is often bottom up, not top down
Was there any indication if the  EU is using things like DaaS or VDI? Would be interesting to see how it compares to what's going on here in the U.S.

Decision to use cloud is often bottom up, not top down
Sound advice from Dave Kearns: "The first step is for companies to take a strategic approach to cloud migration rather than a tactical response to business unit demands." And that's precisely why enterprise cloud usage is lagging in France, Austria and Germany at 11-12%. Amazon got off the ground, not when enterprises made a strategic decision to use it, but when developers decided it was a faster way to move forward and marketing decided not to wait for IT to buy more servers. Linux, remember, came in the back door, not the front.

Does breakdown include US-based cloud companies
Good article, Dave. Wondering if the data breaks down the adoption rates by company origin?

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.
