QOTD – Prevention Will Fail and When It Does…

Fire Prevention WeekJust an overall nice quote over at Journey into Incident Response for those over focusing on prevention to achieve 100% security…

“Prevention will fail and when it does, the last line of defense to thwart the threats we are up against is the IR process and its staff.” – @corey_harrell

Basically, it is never going to happen and so you need that incident response/management capability to detect the compromise as fast as possible and respond quickly in picking up the pieces. I’ve seen similar thoughts by various people in the information security community (@taosecurity comes to mind) but I like this form the best at this time.
