HorizonWatching 2012 Trend Report: Security

I’ve posted a trend report on Security (as it relates to the Information Technology Industry) to Slideshare and embedded that deck at the bottom of this post.

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.

Today’s CIOs have security on their mind 24×7. Security is a long term trend that just continues to grow in importance and size. Information security professionals face the challenge of detecting an ever increasing number of threats.

As new technologies like cloud, mobile and social take the IT landscape by storm, security risks grow exponentially. The data center is more vulnerable than ever. New threats emerge daily and even hourly.

The slides (embedded below) provide an overview and introduction to the Security technology trend.  Summary information is provided along with many links to additional resources.   The slides are meant to be read/studied and the links are there for you to continue your learning.  You may want to view the slides in slideshow mode so you can easily follow the links.

  1. Security Trends will be important for many years. It is no longer enough for organizations, or even entire governments, to try to address security strictly within their own enterprises.
