THE EXTENT OF SECURITY incidents and breaches seen today is so high and so widespread that no organisation should be complacent. Rather, organisations should work on the principle that it is probable that they have already been breached. Traditionally, many security technologies have focussed on preventing threats from penetrating their networks, but, faced with increasingly sophisticated, well resourced, and businesslike attackers with the ability to target specific individuals and organisations with tailor-made exploits and to evade such defences, such tools are no longer sufficient. Prevention alone is not enough.
