Up our game!
So wars are taking place on the digital side of the world now? Have we really been too complacent with tech advancements that we completely overlook the security portion of what we have been using? There have been way too many cases of security lapses when organizations become too lax with their security efforts. We really need to up our game for our own sake!

New focus on detection
The difference between cybercriminals and nation -states -- nailed it.  "Instead of focusing on the perimeter, focus on what's inside the network. You're more likely to spot intruders early, which will help your ability to detect attacks and respond faster."  We've been putting this theory to the test with large organizations and agencies around the world.  Using new technologies on the market we have been gaining visibility into attackers by keeping the focus on code execution, a process running and memory, with additional fine-grained monitoring of syntax and interpreter output.  This has enabled detection of attacks that aren't easily identified using WAF, AV, Scanners, RASPs, especially without some prior rules developed based upon previous insight.  #KeepingItShort
