Too many assumptions
The author assumes that an organisation can 100% rely on internet connectivity, 100% of the time from 100% of locations.

As the DYN outage proved, that is simply not the case.

Therefore determining just how business critical certain functions and data are to the enterprise should be a guide as to where those functions and data are located.

The author also assumes that all cloud providers are created equal, or that all cloud based services are operated by AWS, Azure or a similair tier-one provider.

In truth most cloud services are offered by second and third tier providers, who in most cases do not provide their own infrastructure, backups, support, help desk etc.

Understanding the entire kill chain of your potential cloud provider is critical to be able to make a logical decision about whom to trust with what under what terms and conditions.

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.
