Information overload and skills training
Dawn-Marie Hutchinson notes that information and the frequency of basic attacks is (effectively) the new normal - the skills shortage point mirrors that of a politician growing a police force; no matter how many you deploy to patrol, there will always be holes in the system, as the police are not the system and never will be... the threat can never approach zero.   

I'd challenge the assertion that events are useful in this regard, aside from window dressing and networking. Organic skills from employees that are either undisclosed or absent entirely should be the easiest and cheapest port of call for an immediate and proactive response (who knows? Barney in admin may well be a avid dev with his start up on the side...)
