Re: Security matters are getting forced into forethought rather than an afterthought
Great thought here! I really think there needs to be a thought process change - a paradigm shift even - where security is approached from an entirely new direction. Cloud providers go out of their way to create powerfully multi-tenant systems capable of isolating and segregating critical workloads. When it comes to the enterprise, even Sony, we see how a single server gets breached containined a plethora of valuable information. 

It's not easy though. Some folks at the top stil see security as a cost, and then a necessity. Moving forward, the organizations that will succeed are the ones that see security as an enabler to business. The cost actually goes into helping users be more productive as well as more secure. Next-generation security concepts go much further than just "securing" your workloads.

Security matters are getting forced into forethought rather than an afterthought
"As much as an organization like Anthem tries to embrace security, its line of business is providing healthcare services. That's where the company makes money. Anthem had to adapt to the times instead of being born in them."

More and more companies are realizing security can no longer be relegated to the domain of "necessary evil" but rather an integral part of survival.  As such more thought is given to security matters during architecture rather than leaving it to budget permiting post-hoc decisions.  Not just services but product manufacturers are also coming to this realization.
