Data Exhaust: Proof that Only Playing Defense is a Recipe for Doom

Proof that our current cybersecurity defense-only strategy is doomed can be found in today's Wall Street Journal. Three stories on the front page, the front page, mind you:
  1. Hackers can obtain medical and payment records from health-care providers.
  2. Crowdfunding powerhouse Kickstarter was hacked.
  3. Iran's infiltration of the U.S. Navy computer network is "more extensive than had been previously thought…"
My being right on this issue is small consolation.
