Re: Proof of your money's worth
I think that's the goal right? No incidents ever. The problem is there's a fallacy that the if we only invested enough money and buy all the things then we can have no incidents.

Operating in that world requires a methodical approach to make sure we spread the resources we do have around the most efficient way.

It could cost them even more should they fall in an unwanted cyberattack situation and it might just be too late.
