Re: Gender? How about SMART people!
Partial agree - wrong to portray all H1-B in a group but American management has a mindset STILL RUNINNG that IT is just an expense line item in a budget - that's all - damn those high salary men and women who do quiet work in the background.  I just came to my present job from a local office outsourced to WiPro and it was a DISASTER and so much so that the CIO of the place was ASKED to resign after 2 years of living hell.  Security is a high end matter that takes years to train for so we need smart people, not cheap salary expense people, doing the work.  I have met some dumb American workers too in my day.

 

Better?

Re: Gender? How about SMART people!
I had a funny question, why isnt the author of this article in IT? Just my logic as a human asking a good question. No? There is a gap but its not an abnormal sign of anything apocolyptic. Its just a preference by people. Some people love science more than history or any other subject. Being smart doesnt have anything to with genitalia.

Re: Gender? How about SMART people!
@REISEN1955 Your comment about IT people working via the H1-B visa program is an unfair and inflammatory characterization of an important sector of the US workforce. While we welcome different points of view here on Dark Reading, there are more productive ways to debate the issues than disparaging groups of people this way. Let's shift the narrative to a more respectful conversation. Thank you.

Gender? How about SMART people!
We do not need more women or men, we need more SMART people and less H1-B visa cheap salary people who don't know a byte from a malicious javascript component.  Women and Men need apply!   American management has to banish the notion that IT support comes on the cheap!!!  We deal with chaos every moment of every day and have to have unique smarts to deal with it.  Get rid of the notion that salary and benefit expense ALONE rules your IT staffing budgets.

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.
