You hear it, "Year of the Linux Desktop", "Cloud Computing", "Internet Kill Switch", "Copyright Reform", and many other hot issues today.
No this year will be quite different my friends... I do believe this year will simply be known as the year companies began listening to their IT department's advice, and spent the time and money needed to remedy their security. (At least to some noticeable extent)
I see this year as the year in which security moved from an issue to a priority, from a recommended option to a requirement, and from an afterthought to foresight.
This year, security becomes paramount.
