And start with risk...
All good points in terms of what companies can do to maximize the effectiveness of their security program. The item I would add, and suggest should be step one, is to view their security program through the lens of risk. What are the critical assets of the company (which can be data, business processes or systems), what are the most likely threats to those assets, what vulnerabilities exist against likely attacks, and finally what are the ramifications from a successful attack. From that, the CISO can develop a list of actions to close the gaps, prioritized by their risk score. Risk assessment and ongoing management allow the cash, time and staff-strapped CISO to make the most use of the limited resources they have to reduce the overall risk to the enterprise, and perhaps even more important, be able to justify what they are doing and why to their leadership and regulators.

Building the SOC of the Future
While an attacker just needs to find one vulnerability to get in to the network, the defender has to look everywhere. Defenders have to identify, disrupt, and stop attacks in the short period of time between when an attacker gets in and causes damage. One way is a security operations center to get that "all the time" coverage. What's Inside: --AI and cybersecurity response --Automation --Proctive threat hunting --Next-gen SIEM
