True
Have we become so afraid of leaking information that we don't talk across enterprise boundaries at all? This is true in my view. Enterprises do not want to go into troubles with regulations mostly.

Answer is no
As an industry, however, are we really doing enough to share problems and best practices - or are we keeping them mostly to ourselves, and reinventing the wheel separately, in our own silos? My answer to this question is no, we really share security information among enterprises as we consider them sensitive.

The problem
It seems unlikely that the information security problem can be solved until we find meaningful ways of sharing knowledge and information about threats, security challenges, and how to address them. I ageee with this, silos do not help to address major security issues.

The question
This raises the question: How do security pros get together and share ideas to improve their defenses? I say professionals getting together is already a good step in the right direction. We do not do it enough.

Black Hat's events
This is a good to have but not enough, enterprises should start sharing security data among themselves to make sure we can stand against hackers.
