Re: Do the best you can during the countdown to inevitability
At Aon many years ago in Manhattan, a lawyer checked his wireless connects and saw one just across town - turned to the window and said " Wow - Citibank."  With no buildings inbetween, he could see it plain as day.

Re: Anger
Totally agree. The JP Morgan Chase breach should have been a wake-up call. I'm sure their security budgets are enormous and I know they employ some very talented people.

Yahoo case
"which went undetected for four months as attackers siphoned data out of the fortress."

Very important. In Yahoo case it was years, unbelievable.

"detect / mitigate phishing"

That makes sense, it is difficult since in involves the end users behavioral change. Something hard to do.

"Career Is Soon Over"

I agree. However CISO keep telling the business that there is high risk, unfortunately they do not get enough attention.

Enjoyed reading the article. It reflects the reality on the ground. Most of us do not think we would get hit.

Re: Do the best you can during the countdown to inevitability
I'd love to see the defenders get to Resolve... unfortunately, as you say, until we find a way to effectively detect / mitigate phishing it's gonna be a long road.

Do the best you can during the countdown to inevitability
CISO's know.  They don't call it "Carreer Is Soon Over" for nothing.  It's the hotseat and any ignorant user that gets phished can signal that your time is up.  As you say, there are companies that have been breached and those that will be breached.  Maybe the last stage is Resolve.
