A progress report on the Predictions 2014 I made in several posts here, at the end of Q2.
|Trust||Bitcoin may be in this corner, covering a lot of this subject [edited to add: it’s now legal in California ..!]. Also, Heartbleed pointed out our dependency on ‘anyone but us’ in actually checking/testing open source software like OpenSSL, and the trust placed in the great many low-level bits and pieces that make up ‘the’ Internet (connections).
[After publishing, I’ll cross-post my ISSA Journal column on this, as a post] —> [Here it is]
|Identity||Facebook allowing anonymous (fake) identities. Users deleting posts from socmed, and switching to ephemeral messaging (Snapchat et al.). The European Court ordering Google to delete histories at request. (The semantics of) identity proceeds to being manageable…|
|Things||Moving into a focus, vanguard of Sensors. And the Glass successors are surfacing. Earables here …|
|Social||Movement all around; with a focus on privacy as in my May 30th post.|
|Analytics||Wow, this one’s moving into the Through of Disillusionment quickly! Now get it to jump out at the other hand, as quickly.|
|Cloud||Mehhh, indeed. Still. The focus shifts towards actual security implementations, and control over that. On the Slope of Enlightenment, I’d say.|
|Demise of ERP, the||Dude, these platforms aren’t even audited otherwise than by the most boring of boring routines – anyone interested in things other than pure dry deadwood, are working on other things.|
|InfoSec on the steep rise||Even if we haven’t seen enough on this!
|Deflation of TLD||Really out of sight even in the most dull accountant’s circles.|
|Subtotal||Already clearly over 80% as we speak, when discounting for some fall-back here and there.|
The faint of heart wouldn’t necessarily want to speak the bold characters out loud.
See you at the end of Q3 ..!
