Security Analytics
It is mandatory today. This is not a new topic, building knowledge to prevent from future attacks is what we do by default we just need to go beyond that and predicts attacks when there is no any predictability of it.

Secure Software
 

Obviously best defense is to build a secure software. Analytics is still basically a catch-up, we just need to re-think our software development practices and embed security while code is being written.
