"Hi Bob, As your CISO it is my job to ensure we are all complying with our security policies.  Yesterday, I removed a sticky note you had taped to the bottom of your keyboard that had your password written on it.  What part of "Do not share or write down your password" did you not understand?."

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.
