Gartners overhyped security threats

#83 Last week, senior Gartner analysts slammed the industry overhyping of threats to mobile computing devices, wireless and VOIP. They also fingered compliance fear-mongering and rumours of "superworms" as contributing to the security over-hype.

Now I follow Gartner closely, and they are usually the first to publish reports along the lines of "Time to prepare for...x" or "Get ready for...x" (replace x with latest flavour of the month threat), so this is a bit of a change of tack for them. And they were the first to warn of the threats of VOIP.

Nevertheless this has created much interesting debate, which you can view at InfoWorld and NetworkWorld
