Re: Know your business
I second that, Ryan.  

Additionally, having something valuable necessitates a deep understanding of the marketplace your asset is valued in, how it is traded, sold and appraised, and what the related geography of the valued asset is.  An example is casinos and banks.  There is lots of data over the decades and centuries that these entities have evolved and intelligent casino and bank managers know their enemy.  Tech changes over time, but for the most part, casino and bank managers do a good job of keeping abreast of those who target them for purposes of theft.

Know your business
Conversely, to add on to this idea is to know your business. By this I mean if you are a United States company and you have no dealings with countries outside of the United States ensure that your safeguards and rules only allow for that type of traffic. Knowing your business is a nice complement to knowing your attacker.
