Time to Market Considerations
I couldn't agree more, especially coming from a fast-paced environment where clinical data, patient health records and research materials are in the charge of many users, from programmers, testers and production support staff.  We are pushed to our limits on a regular basis to release new code, to fix production issues and so forth, and at many steps of the process data that must be kept secure has potential to become vulnerable.

A project requirement I see missing from many a project plan is exactly the things you are referring to, including milestones for data integrity checks before, during and after projects, whether they are one-off requests for an overnight tweak or a year-long project.  Luckily for my team we work hand-in-hand with teams like Security and Compliance.  We treat all requests the same, we care for the data in the same manner regardless the project.  But the requirements should still be documented as many projects may overlook such "minutia".

Time to Market should not compromise integrity and all considerations related to Security and Compliance should be built into the day-to-day operations of every team member who has charge over sensitive data.  And, the requirements for such data management written into project plans, no matter how small large, and the operational mind-set of every user with access well trained to avoid breaches of this type.

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.
