The global cost of cybercrime is estimated at over US $100 billion per
year, a financial impact that is comparable to major drug trafficking
throughout the world.  Accordingly the underground marketplace for
vulnerabilities and compromised data is developed with powerful
players backed by organized crime. These criminals seek accesses to
financial systems, user data and anything that can be easily sold and
converted to cash.

Despite these threats, the web continues to grow based on connecting
individuals, knowledge, and by providing valuable services that
operate on sensitive user information.

How do we reconcile an increasing threat that preys on the very
information that is required for the growth of the web? How does an
organization balance the challenges of innovation, speed, and cost
versus the seemingly doomed approaches to security?

We must first understand the reality of our adversaries and the status
quo of security defense. Then we can ask the hard questions and
fundamentally change how we approach securing applications and data.
