Mike Spanbauer, Vice President of Research at NSS Labs, emphasized the importance of asking the right questions in thinking about the current threat environment.
"We in security have a labor issue, a talent issue," Spanbauer announced at the outset of his thought leadership presentation at the 2016 Chief Information Security Officer Leadership Forum held in San Francisco on June 29. "There aren't enough folks to work on the tools, manage, and maintain them much less address the epic struggle between us and the adversaries. Are we thinking about this problem in the right way? he asked.
"Whether or not you believe you've been breached, chances are, you have," said Spanbauer.
...
"Employee training is critical because every member of the organization is part of the security function," said Spanbauer. "Education shouldn't only focus on protecting against vulnerabilities but empowering employees to be responsible for enhancing security."
Spanbauer continued: "Attacks progress in a sequence. The key consideration for security is whether the organization has effective technologies, processes, and people to address each point in this sequence. The closer to the infection point that it's possible to effectively protect the data, the less costly it's going to be," he pointed out. These early intervention platforms include decision support, vulnerability management, and patch management.
"The closer to the infection point that it's possible to effectively protect the data, the less costly it's going to be."
"We often look backwards rather than at what exploits are popular now, what applications are being targeted," observed Spanbauer.
...
Almost 100% of all breaches are attributed to a few hundred exploits and a few dozen commercial exploit kits, noted Spanbauer.
...
"We need to change as quickly as the threat actors change," Spanbauer advised. "The applications threat actors target are changing and the security products they bypass are changing. However, the only real exposure is where active exploits and company assets intersect, so this is where security needs to be focused."

"It is imperative for enterprises to deploy security products that protect sensitive data whether it is moving across the perimeter or internally within the data center - and host-based products have never been more important in achieving this goal," stated Mike Spanbauer, vice president of Research at NSS Labs.
