Re: Collaboration
We see alot of collaboration in terms of the ISAC's. Information Sharing and Analysis Centers. Many industry sectors have them. For instance FS-ISAC, is the financial services ISAC and they meet once a week to go over emerging threats.

It's hard to measure to what extent we should share informaiton and even when we do, the amount that our industry peers act on it is a whole other discussion.

Re: Improvement
Most definitely, I think the main crux is can we adapt faster than the threats can. It seems like we always no what to do but are fairly slow to employ such measures.

Re: Assets
I agree 100% there. This is why its imperative to deploy a CMDB and employ a resource that their full time job is to manage it from nuts to bolts. Makes not only compliance easier but threat becomes minimized when you can become aware of what your assets should and should not have on them.

Re: Timely
And actionable. I love to use the term "Actionable Intelligence". The term really implies that if data is provided that it should be acted upon in some way. 

Without action, information loses a lot of its value.

Re: Security
Good Point. I think its a balance of both. If you have good tools but no processes it becomes shelfware. If you have good processes in place but no tools it becomes very laborious manually. A healthy balance of both I think is the key.

Collaboration
collaboration between security organizations in different companies was taboo. Today, it's required. Collaboration can really happen if we can anonymize data.

They are highly effective when leveraged to continually improve an operational program Threats are changing obviously programs and countermeasures have to adapt.

Assets
Inventory management is a common struggle, partially because VTM teams use a combination of sources to identify where assets live. I agree. If we do not know where they are most likely we do not know what they do either.

Timely
VTM strategies should include effective, timely, and collaborative reporting of actionable metrics. I think timely is operative word in here. All these things come together at one point but mainly late.

Security
Good security programs start with a mindset that it's not about the tools, it's what you do with them. For me it is less about to tools more about processes we incorporate into our daily routines.
