RE: record number of CVE Vulnerabilities in 2020
Interesting article, but I guess we shouldn't be surprised by the sheer number of CVE's in 2020.

Programmers are still not well trained in secure coding as the industry is more interested in quantity of code than security of code.

But the other problem is the actual elephant in the room: any computer or computer network that has internet access will forever be vulnerable and intrinsically insecure. Every networked device with an internet connection is either one or two user clicks away from compromise or just one determined Red Team's best efforts away from a successful breach. And we learn this lesson over & over again because we've become utterly dependent on an inherently insecure internet infrastructure.

This has become increasingly alarming because our personal information, intellectlual property, defense department data, financial information, and even the electronic door locks on our homes & businesses are all subject to remote attack and successful compromise. All the while, new internet connected products are released almost every day, and sales & marketing people run around selling "the cloud...the cloud". A cloud being a huge blindspot where almost anything could be happening that you won't see coming until the split second when it hits you.

So, we can make an educated guess and say with almost complete certainty that 2021 will report a new record number of CVE's. The beat goes on...

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.
