Re: Agreed, process must be revisited
One process area that is in sore need of revision in InfoSec is Requirements Gathering.  While InfoSec should always be a DevOps environment (IMHO), when it isn't (security appliance industry) there must be a more expansive R&D process to fully understand the technology being used to penetrate large enterprises, especially where the most sensitive data is at risk.  We see so many large apps go to market with fancy tools that seem to entirely rely upon the user to configure and make successful.  InfoSec should not be in the business of selling widgets.  Instead, we need more proactive, intelligent and fully operational defenses for users where development keeps up with the underground and is constantly gathering requirements that lend to patches and point releases that can keep pace with the quickly evolving tools of cyber criminals.

Agreed, process must be revisited
Great insights, John. I especailly agree with the idea that organizations need to revisit process, especially around security operations and incident response. Sometimes the process is the problem, and makes organizations reative instead of proactive.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
