Virtual "We're Closed" signs?
I wonder if the solution for a lot of small enterprises may eventually become a full shutdown of all system during non-peak hours.  Think of it like "Sorry, We're Closed" 2.0.

Obviously, this would only work in certain contexts, and bear with it its own costs, but at a certain point, those costs may be substantially smaller for some companies compared with the cost of risk mitigation and/or the actual risk of a breach.

Right now, though, usually it's the other way around, and the risk is cost-justified in the long run -- but that formula/those numbers could change for for smaller businesses.

CISO? Sysadmins? EVERYONE is responsible for cyber security ...
Skills shortage is obviously a concern, but those skills might be closer than you think - dare I say, there may be diamonds in the rough sitting in your office right now. 

Regardless of sourcing specific cyber skills, and easy-win to creating basic breach detection skills can come thorugh education and up to date threat identification techniques. 

'Cybsafe' for those in the UK is certainly a good option, if you want GCHQ-accreditation and certification for the workforce.

Cheers Josh!

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.
