Predictions for 2009

I better get with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 program and post my 2009 predictions before any more of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new year slips by. I plan to build on my Predictions for 2008 in Hindsight and add a few new thoughts.

  1. Expect greater government involvement in assessing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 security of private sector networks. I wasn't inventing this a year ago, and I'm not inventing it now. I'm extrapolating from a trend line. My post Letters You Will Need to Know: 201 CMR 17.00 is just cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 latest example of increasingly aggressive government involvement in private sector security matters.

  2. Expect to start learning about IPv6, or be confused quickly. 2009 is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 year of IPv6, but we're getting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. The US Department of Defense is already grappling with IPv6, despite cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 compliance charade of mid-2008. Wider adoption of Microsoft Vista and its tunnel mechanisms, along with IPv6-active consumer devices, are driving IPv6 in one form or cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r into our lives.

  3. Expect at least one cloud security incident to affect something you value. This is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 great Cloud Security blog, but I know many of us are already depending on cloud services. In 2007 and 2008 we started suffering denial when services suffered problems of availability. Next will be disclosure and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n degradation.

  4. Expect network security to matter again. I may be a little late on this one, given problems we had with DNS, BGP, and even SSL in 2008. I think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se sorts of problems demonstrate that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's lots of vulnerability left outside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 platform, operating system, and applications. As IPv6 becomes more important this one is going to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list, probably in 2010.

  5. Expect to buy fewer "new" security products. We need to get back to basics by answering cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sorts of questions that appeared in my post Marcus Ranum on Network Security. In tough economic times, managers are not going to spend on new equipment if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y still don't know what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stuff you just bought does. Spend more time on consolidation and specialization and less time on looking for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next security silver bullet.


Good luck in 2009 everyone. It's going to be a good year -- "fine in '09"!

I was thinking you you should have

"6. You, or someone you know, will get hacked, and it will cost someone cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir job."

Shock tends to get people attention. Maybe a sub-prediction under #4?

Two more trends to consider:

1) "There is no perimeter"... cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 continued migration from securing networks and infrastructure to securing data.

2) Continued emergence of social networking as a business tool, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 impact this has on our very notion of company communications and information protection
