Dealing with Security Challenges

Do you ever feel like you are the lone gunman?  Taking pot shots into the dark while trying to solve the your organization's IT issues?  Sometimes it seems we need an army of people on our security team just to keep up with the daily vulnerabilities and challenges. 

Even so, some of us are small security departments being constantly bombarded with incidents, vulnerabilities and forensics.  We try to stay one step ahead of the bad guys, but feel like we're losing the battle.  Do you have some helpful advice for smaller teams?  That's were ISC can help.  We're here to pass on the knowledge from all over the world to teams small and large.

How do you handle these challenges, or how would you do it with less personnel?  Perhaps you have some tips for your overwhelmed and understaffed collegues.  Please send in any helpful ideas you might have for trying to keep up with this ever changing threat landscape.  We'll post your suggestions here all day.
