Re: My main concern is the successful attack at JP Morgan Chase
Good points, Ulf. The attack on JP Morgan is definitely a wake-up call to the industry and an indicator that businesses need to tighten their data security. I think locking down the data is the right way to go - you're right, attackers will always be finding successful ways to get around defenses.

My main concern is the successful attack at JP Morgan Chase
The largest US bank lost personal information of 76 million households and it took several months to detect.

I'm also concerned that the U.S. power grid could be shut down.  

Unfortunately, current security approaches can't tell you what normal looks like in your own systems and the situation is getting worse according to Verizon. Verizon is reporting that this a growing issue. Less than 14% of breaches are detected by internal security tools according to the annual international breach investigations report by Verizon.

Attackers will always figure out how to get around defenses, so you need to lock down the data that they want to steal.

So we need to protect our sensitive data itself with modern data centric security technology. As consumers, we must demand better protection from the companies we do business with.
