Instructors at SANS Security West 2012
This is an effort to chronicle what a number of really smart people believe the state of the information security industry to be, and where we are going. A lot of the emphasis is on security threats, but we also consider what is working and what good practice is. We hope you will be able to use this in your strategic planning and also as input for your security architecture.
Some "predictive" input from SANS Security West 2012 instructors on emerging security trends:
- John Strand
I expect to see a sharp increase in attacks against end-users and administrators who are accessing and controlling cloud-based services (both public and private clouds). Much of the focus is on the security of the cloud itself but very often the end-users are left to their own while connecting from less secure public networks. Administrators in particular will be targeted as they hold the keys to the cloud-based kingdom.
