I think you are absolutely right. In my field(s) of work, threats are
countered with "controls". There are three types of controls: preventive
controls, detective controls, and mitigative controls. All three are
important and are used against any threat. First you have to detect it.
Second you have to prevent it. And third, you have to response if the
prevention doesn't work. All three are considered necessary to have a
complete response to a threat.
