Mark seems to be falling deeper and deeper into this worm hole
At this point, he needs to invest in software that is intelligent (Sophos Intercept X, Extrahop, FireEye, IBM Watson with Qradar, McAfee Nitro, etc) to make a decision on the landscape and determine if anomaly exists and then make a decision on a learned response (50,000 clicks of individuals being affected, I think this should do it). Also, Facebook is being finded in other countries across the globe for their lack of PII controls.

Also, there needs to be a discussion on behavorial analysis where if the attack took place in this part of the country, the software should enter it into a SharedDB (No-SQL); big-data can be used to create relationships where each attack element is scrunitized to the nth degree. This provides the security teams with a way to determine if this hack occurred from the same region, person, type or some characteristic where they can narrow it down to an area, business or person. This correlation should be prioritized based on the level of severity and then feed into the ML system where resolutions are presented to the security expert; each expert can determine if this is worth pursuing or not, but this reaction can be done in real-time without user interaction if this is a repeatable occurrence.

AI vs CyberSecurity Trends

There are companies who are making changes to the landscape, but they are not being effectively used and integrated, there needs to be another focus on how information is gathered during the initial stages to ensure it is cleansed and/or eradicated before it has time to incubate or be part of their ecosystem.
