As with most of technology, security goes through periodic changes, cycles and generations. Hardware, software, applications and methodologies all mature, become commoditised and standardised to the point of being invisible, and then are reinvented in a new evolved form.

Pervasive technologies and its implication on security

All of us are, to some extent, slaves to technology. Judicious use of technology is mandated. Human kind has, so far, been naïve in adopting technology with the presumption that it will always be used in the right spirit, but we have seen it being used in the wrong context over and over again. This article is about the implications of malicious use of pervasive technology.

How Can Organisations Deal Intelligently with Information Security Breaches?

Data breaches are happening more frequently, compromising larger volumes of data than ever before. We seem to hear about new data breaches every day. The number of compromised records grows, while organisations are subjected to larger financial penalties, stronger legislative and regulatory scrutiny, and tangible reputational damage. For organisations that suffer a breach, responding in an intelligent and confident manner is critical.
