Electronic attacks can be as damaging as bombs. Ever-increasing sophistication of attacks against both governments and private organizations requires commensurate sophistication of defense. Because attacks are often a mixture of unique technical and social engineering efforts, a human-in-loop is a necessary component of nullification. However, just as important is decision speed. It does no good to know a problem is beginning without an ability to get rapid response from those with power to stop it.
