Attacker countermeasures
I agree that " technologies that depended on things like anomaly detection, signature detection, and sandboxing tend to show effectiveness decreases of 65 percent over the course of a decade due to attacker countermeasures designed to circumvent them."

Less than 14% of breaches are detected by internal security tools according to the annual international breach investigations report from Verizon. Detection by external third party entities unfortunately increased from approximately 10% to 25% during the last three years. Unfortunately, current security approaches can't tell you what normal looks like in your own systems.

I think that we need to focus on protecting our sensitive data itself.

I found great advice in a Gartner report, covering enterprise and cloud, analyzed solutions for Data Protection and Data Access Governance and the title of the report is "Market Guide for Data–Centric Audit and Protection."  I recently read another interesting Gartner report, "Big Data Needs a Data-Centric Security Focus," concluding," In order to avoid security chaos, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) need to approach big data through a data-centric approach. Gartner is proposing data tokenization as an effective approach to security sensitive data.

I suggest that we should secure sensitive data across the entire data flow, including cloud, big data and enterprise systems. This approach can be very effective in addressing attacks against data, also from insider threats.
