Today we are faced with an ever increasing threat of advanced malware and the attacks associated with it. Compliance has created a gathering mentality in Information Security and it is no longer adequate to defend our tribe.
We must move more towards a hunters mentality and seek out the bad stuff in order to protect our tribe. We must detect and respond to the threats and seek them out because they are sneaky prey looking to take your goods while you gather data, stats, reports and check compliance reports for auditors.
Be an InfoSec Hunter and less a gatherer.
