The danger is real
Too often, even after a risk is actualized by a real or simulated attack, people continue to ignore the threat and pretend that it is exaggerated.  This comparison to shark infested waters will perhaps make it more real.  People are irrationally afraid of low-likelihood shark attacks; we need them to be rationally afraid of these attacks.

Threats
Threats are everywhere, in the water and online. They're usually hidden. They are mainly hidden in our logs, we can find them with automation. We mainly miss real threats but deal with false positives or negatives.

False positive
Many threats are false positives; the dorsal fin of a friendly, curious dolphin can look like the dorsal fin of a shark that's circling the waters. This is where most of our security analyst time is wasted. So we need to change it with automation.

Nice analogy
