Donald Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense, said in 2002 during a press conference that there are “unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know.” His statement about unknown information is directly applicable to security professionals.

The discovery process helps to move unknown assets and capabilities to the known category. But what about those items you think you have but cannot find?
