a proactive approach
 

A proactive approach make sense to me. Obviously hackers are proactive so only solution to be a counter-puncher.

Encryption
 

Encryption is just another overloaded word. Now people started thinking that once you have encryption you are good to go. Unfortunately that is not the case, if you end device is compromised encryption could not help you

"the faster we realize we operate most of the time in the dark"

"it's necessary to deal with the unknown and not only focus on what we know "

Good point. What we know is most likely not going to be pain point.

Know That You Know Nothing
 

Know That You Know Nothing? Agree. That is how it needs to start. Make no assumption check everything again and again.

You do not know what you do not know
This is such a true statement and a reminder for all of us that at all time and after each small victory against hackers the game is back on. Hackers will find new ways to get to the data they seek and will use zero-day threats, and all other technology at their fingertips - including encryption- to deceit and reach their goal.  This seems like a dooming reality for IT security professionals, but the faster we realize we operate most of the time in the dark, the sooner we will get wise about searching for the unusual, the uncommon, the odd event.

Completely agree
I 100% agree with your point of view, and according to me that's even a part of the definition of security : we must plan what we ignore, guess what we don't see and search what's hidden. In other words, it's necessary to deal with the unknown and not only focus on what we know. And then cross the fingers we did it well :). Socrates said "I know that I know nothing" and later Descartes advised to doubt of everything to improve and be sure of what we consider as true. It could be a good method in security to avoid errors and do a perfect job.
