What Everyone Needs to Know Q&A: With news of the FBI investigating hacking attempts on seven top banks, including JPMorgan Chase, we want to know:

How can we better prepare for cyber incidents?
The challenge of defending against cyberthreats is not just due to their varied and diffuse nature, but also because so much depends on how organizations react and respond when cyber push comes to cyber shove. Prussian general Helmuth Graf von Moltke’s famous military adage should serve as warning: “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” It is one thing to develop a plan; it’s quite another to understand how well that plan will hold up when tested. In the cyber world this holds even truer. Responses must be considered at every level, from national security strategy to enterprise risk management, down to the technical level, where engineers must make fast decisions about network incursions. It is not just about protection; the wrong response could be worse than the attack itself.
This is where the value of exercises and simulations come in. They don’t just test defenses at the pointy end of the cyber spear but also help all better understand the effects of their plans and procedures.

"Chère  et excellente  amie,  quelle  chose  terrible et effrayante que
  l'absence!  J'ai beau  me  dire que la moitié  de  mon existence  et  de mon
  bonheur est en vous, que malgré la distance qui nous sépare, nos coeurs sont
  unis par des liens indissolubles; le mien se révolte contre la  destinée, et
  je ne puis, malgré les plaisirs et les distractions qui m'entourent, vaincre
  une certaine tristesse cachée que  je ressens au fond du coeur depuis  notre
  séparation.  Pourquoi ne sommes-nous pas réunies,  comme cet  été dans votre
  grand  cabinet  sur le canapé bleu,  le  canapé  à confidences?  Pourquoi ne
  puis-je, comme il y a trois  mois, puiser  de nouvelles forces  morales dans
  votre regard si doux, si calme  et si pénétrant, regard que j'aimais tant et
  que je crois voir devant moi, quand je vous écris"
