Cybersecurity Trends for 2014 – Trend 1 – Botclouds not Botnets #security #infosec

Picture from stackbots.com. Cross-posted to the Blue Coat security blog. I’d been attempting to figure out how in the future it will be that botnets will continue to be relevant.  It occurred to me that with cloud infrastructure, that malware authors have the perfect opportunity to create or destroy as many machines as they want […]

Trends in #CyberSecurity for 2014 #bitcoin #litecoin #botcloud #deepweb #malware #bigdata

Picture from Northeastern.edu. I gave a talk at the Info Crime Summit in London yesterday, and identified what I think will be six trends in cybersecurity.

Having a 500+ person centralised government in a country of millions makes no sense when […]
