Top IT Security investment for 2013 - Mobility, Authentication, Encryption Are Experts' Picks

If 2012 is the year of mobility - as remote computing drives organizations to figure out how to let employees gain access to critical systems from anywhere - 2013 is likely to be a repeat.

As 2013 budgets take shape, the editors of Information Security Media Group websites asked their boards of advisers - leading information security practitioners, regulators, academics and thought-leaders - what they see as the technologies they expect organizations to invest in in the coming year. Nearly all of the experts mention mobility.

Besides mobility, other technologies individual advisers see organizations acquiring in 2013 include authentication, encryption and monitoring wares.
"Mobile security seems to be top of the list," says Adam Greene, an attorney who specializes in HIPAA and HITECH Act compliance and member of the HealthcareInfoSecurity board. "As we move towards greater adoption of EHRs (electronic health records), inappropriate employee access to records continues to be a thorn in the side," Greene says.

Another HealthcareInfoSecurity adviser, IT security consultant Tom Walsh, agrees, noting the trend of moving away from organizationally owned to personally owned devices, referred to as bring your own device, or BYOD. "Realistically managing workers' expectations while establishing appropriate safeguards and controls to reduce risks is the challenge facing almost every organization," he says.
Mobility also will drive investments in multifactor authentication not dependent on cryptography, says GovInfoSecurity and InfoRiskToday adviser Melissa Hathaway, who served as a top cybersecurity adviser to Presidents Obama and Bush.
