Top InfoSec Issues for 2006

I attended the "Security & Risk Management" track of the annual Dimension Data Global Customer Special Interest Group (SIG) at The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City, South Africa last weekend, where some 16 of their influential customers from around the world convened with their executive management to discuss challenges facing IT.

The Security track yielded the following top customer issues likely to impact their information security strategies for 2006, in order of importance/impact:

  1. Privacy and Legislation
  2. Mobility and wireless
  3. Outsourcing & Collaboration
  4. Convergence
  5. Organised Crime
  6. Messaging, presence and P2P
  7. Internet useage explosion

The most likely technology category to address many burning issues currently experienced in InfoSec was "Endpoint Security" consisting of:

  1. Authentication (device and user)
  2. Integrity & compliance enforcement (scan+block)
  3. Encryption
  4. Remote data erasure (wiping)

CATEGORIES: 1survey, 1SIG, 1trends, 1endpoint security, 1users, 1privacy, 1mobility, 1outsourcing, 1convergence, 1crime, 1messaging, 1endpoint security
