    • security folks must transition from looking for bugs to interacting with a process
    • we need to re-learn how to prioritize the bugs
    • typically we see a long list of medium and low severity bugs, always there, are they being exploited?
    • how do we prioritize functionality, bug fixes and security fixes?
    • how to connect w/ developers and prioritize bugs, know where attacks happen in infrastructure and code, 80% go here, lets secure that first?
