Security is holistic
It is an interesting article that is focused to creating an overall culture of security.

Security is an holistic approach apart from user education and awareness and logical controls it also important to consider the physical security and implementation of logical controls that are in place.You can get the best firewalls and IDS but they will not operate unless configured correctly.

All the logical controls are in place but lets consider that the door to your server room remains open and somebody plugs the server off and takes it with him.

So security needs to taken care of from all different directions.

 

Thanks and Regards

Lowest hanging fruit
As much as I think this is an interesting look at security, I think it glosses over why it's important to implement even basic security (even if it truly does use basic info like mother's maiden name). The reason this is important, is because with targeted attacks, even the best security can be circumnvented, but with more general attacks, all you have to do is run faster (or be more secure) than your friends. 

While that might be an everyone-for-themselves mentality, keeping antivirus up to date, using unique and ever changing passwords will go a long way to keeping people protected day to day. 

It might not stop the most nefarious of hackers, but as long as you're off their radar you should be ok anyway.

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.
