And Anthem (BCBS) outsourced to Fujitsu.  I have never seen "run your mess for less" actually work.

Outsource?
An outsource entity has ONE and only one business interest at heart and that is to be PAID.  They care about the invoice and everything else is secondary.  Oh they will never tell YOU are the client that, but rare is the outsource project that is a sucess.  IBM has the worst track record by far of any major corporation and consider that name!!  IBM --- once the giant of American information tech.  Now, more employees in India!!!  And don't go near Wipro, Tata, Infosys or any other of the low cost providers.  Keep SECURITY IN-HOUSE at all costs.  It just is not worth the risk!!!

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.
