RE: Avoiding 'Magpie Syndrome' In Cybersecurity
I agree with this, the technologies are great up to a point, but you need to have your processes in place to support them properly and also the staff knowledgable enough to be able to deal with the process and the technology.

Importance of Context Awareness
The issue I see with many of the anti"fill-in-the-blank" and the shiny new vendor tools is that they are siloed. Vendors make many promises about their tool, but context awareness around their tool is important as well as being able to integrate each tool into an overarching strategy. I agree with the point that vendors need to act as trusted advisors instead of going for the easy sale. Unfortunately, like the bad actors out there, vendors and security teams both follow the path of least resistance. Meaning, until either vendors, or the more likely, security teams work together to discover how a tool can fit into a seurity strategy, we will continue to see this 'Magpie Syndrome.' On top of that, we have yet to see a tool that manages vendor risk, how difficult is it to know that the best tools and a top notch strategy can be undone by a 3rd party vendor with poor security.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
