32 Articles Discussing IT Security Trends for 2013

SecuritySecurity is one of the most important long term trends happening in the Information Technology Industry today. 

There so many challenges facing enterprise I.T. departments, many of which were just not a major challenge 10 years ago.  The advent of cloud, mobile, social, big data, other digital trends is taxing even the most secure enterprise I.T. infrastructure.  Enterprise IT systems are sending and receiving more information to partners, customers and external stakeholders over a wide variety of networks.    In addition to those disruptive and emerging technology  trends is the fact that the criminals and hackers out there are getting more and more sophisticated in their planning of cyber attacks.

Today, our world’s infrastructure is both more sophisticated and more interconnected than ever before – linking vast amounts of information and services in new ways, but also introducing more security complexities and challenges in roughly equal proportion. For this reason, it is no longer enough for organizations, or even entire governments, to try to address security strictly within their own enterprises.

The list below contains 32 articles and blog posts I found recently that discuss the important 2013 trends to watch out for within the overall I.T. Security topic.  Read a few of these and you will get a good idea of what challenges await CIOs and their staffs in 2013.
