Re: Compliance vs. security
I've been hearing healthcare IT professionals recently describing how they're torn between the need to release patient data to patients, security concerns, and compliance issues.  It's a minefield.

Re: Compliance vs. security
David, my interpretation was that the strict focus on compliance is taking away from organizations' ability to protect their most critical/sensitive resources, which Ed notes should be the goal. 

Another point I found really interesting was the statement that "cloud-based protections are minimal defenses against all of these threats because of the network visibility required to detect and mitigate them." I was surprised to hear that coming from AT&T. Is there no hope for network-operator-based security improvements to help screen out more of the threats?

Compliance vs. security
I was left wondering by the statement about audit requirements focusing too much on compliance issues. Is that in conflict with the security imprerative for some reason? Or you just saying that security needs to be given an even higher priority?

Ed, You paint a pretty sobering picture for IT security executives & the new paradigm you describe will clearly require a major shift in thinking. What are some suggestions on  how IT senior management and audit teams  should start to refocus protection their efforts?  Your point noting that "the most basic tenet of today's corporate audit involves testing controls to ensure 100 percent compliance with corporate policy" sounds to me like it wil l be to be a heavy lift.
