Nik Alleyne Presenting: Importance of Intrusion Detection in a Compromised Prone World

What is meant by intrusion detection in a comprise prone world? '

According to dark reading there were 4.2 billion records exposed in 2016. '

According to risk based security, for the period Jan 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017 there were over 3,833 incidents resulting in over 7 billion+ records being exposed. '

Considering the above, intrusion detection and specifically SANS SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth training, makes detecting these breaches much easier.
