Engage the Hacker Underground
Or at least keep a finger on its pulse.  Creating a shiny steel silo and feeling confident all 10 critical steps are up-to-date and include knowledge only the hacker underground has is a risk.  Somehow as an InfoSec leader you have to engage the hacker underground, whether it is through occasional hiring of consultants or the monitoring of darkweb sources to see who is currently targeting you or your tech platform.  You have to watch the Packet Storms out there, read the latest exploit DB entries, and know when a zero day applies to you before even your tech vendors know.  While cyber laws make offensive security difficult, without some element of combatant mentality and underground knowledge, you are putting your data at risk.

Cyber Security Culture
Great artible!  You nailed in on the hammer.

I have seen time and time again, when organizations focus on the gaps in security, processes and  policy, they work toward the goal of lowering their risk and changing the culture for the better.

You cannot rely on a single user or person to do this, it starts from the top with outside help and it works itself down to the everyone.
