The tools for Cybersecurity are shifting from Protection and Detection toward Tolerance and Survivability.  As Malware numbers, attacks, cost, and time-to-fix all explode,  it has become clear that advances in Cybersecurity technology have outpaced similar advances in People and current Processes.

Is this simply a technology discussion?  The presentation was based on several decades of industry, telecom, and government perspectives.
