The need for updating security infrastructure and solutions will not go away in 2010, says IT Business Edge guest contributor Carl Herberger. As hackers figure out ways to bypass the latest and greatest security tools, businesses are consistently upgrading their protection measures in an attempt to stay ahead of their attackers.
Herberger lists 10 areas of particular concern as companies plan for 2010. These include:
- Pandemic Continuity Planning
- Readdressing Malware Variants
- Addressing Social Networking and Web 2.0 Threats
- Incident Response
- Unmanaged Mobile Devices
"Budgets might be tight moving into 2010, but businesses still will have to comply to regulations, react to new and low-cost virtualization technologies, and adapt to the growing trend of using outsourced business partners to accomplish key business tasks."
