We've only gotten through a single financial quarter and already 2015 is on pace to be a doozy of a breach year. With a pair of the biggest healthcare breaches on record, along with some eye-opening compromises and continued examples of zero-day exploits and DDoS attacks, the year to date shows that CISOs and risk officers still have a lot of work to do in order to mitigate IT risks to their organizations.

Re: Only the Beginning
It's more complex than that.

It's either: 1) Management is not competent. Some managers are like "what are you doing? You're not doing anything productive. We don't see any result. We are wasting money." 2) Then there are incompetent security experts who are faking security. They are not doing aything + keeps making things up and pointing fingers.

Security is trying to find out the holes, try to break, try to exploit the system. Most of the time is trying to break the system and then finding the solution. How do you know they are lying, playing or working without a total understanding of the computer security?

Only the Beginning
These are only the beginning...We still have a majority of the year left and it seems many organizations are taking a reactive approach and rolling the dice.
