Wrong Direction
As if matters were not dire enough with an explosion in sophisticated, effective hacker tools, every criminal element which can capture a programmer or buy the software expects to rake in unprecedented profit.

Are corporate chiefs still asleep, trusting in the old IDS model for security? From all appearances, they are, indeed, and it will take millions more in losses before they awaken to the threat.

Poor training, coupled with antiquated threat indentification methods, understaffed IT sections, merger-speed corporate expansion, and profound ignorance of the threat conspire to make "corporate security" (almost) an oxymoron.

For Dark Readers, these are the dark ages of network security.

Re: The million dollar mark
"...the time from attack to compromise and attack to exfiltration is rarely longer than a few days."

Which means you have to be doubly vigilant when it comes to protecting everything -- endpoints such as printers and mobile devices, wireless connections, everything! And people are not doing that. Here's a portion of a white paper I have open on my desktop: 

"Many do not realize that embedded devices such as printers and industrial controllers can be the source or initial access point for a network breach. In fact, one of the largest identity theft cases in 2014 involved Target's POS systems and leveraged weaknesses within the building's HVAC systems to gain a foothold within Target's internal network." 

Crazy! The white paper can be found here, BTW: bit.ly/1sq1kyG

The million dollar mark
Slide 4: Find a breach in its first 100 days, save a million dollars. Whew. What a statistic.
