The velocity of technology infrastructure change continues to accelerate, putting serious stress on Security Operations (SecOps). This has forced security folks to face the fact that operations has never really been their forte. Thatís a bit harsh, but denial never helps address problems.

How many attacks were made possible by not having properly patched servers or infrastructure? How many successful compromises resulted from human error?
