  • We can learn from the Sony hack

    By By Kenneth van Wyk | 20 December, 2014 06:09

    Well that stinks, doesn't it? Sony Pictures goes and scrubs the launch of a $44 million movie after being hacked, potentially by North Korea.

Our compelling annual urge to predict the future traces back to the ancient Greeks and their Delphic Oracle--so who am I to argue with such venerable tradition? Here's my top 10 countdown for the shape of our industry in 2015:

  • Five security developments we can be thankful for in 2014

    By Lysa Myers | 19 November, 2014 06:30

    It's not often that we take a moment to think about what we in security are grateful for so I would like to take a moment to think about things that have happened in the past year that have been improvements.
