In this interview, Cliff Saran speaks to Martin Sadler, director of HP's Trusted Systems Lab, about how much should we be expected to spend and how much security is enough. Hackers are getting smarter, and Martin believes newly trained IT professionals are ill-equipped to deal with the sophisticated nature of modern attacks because of limitations in the current way IT security is taught.
Martin reveals how HP is working with universities and commercial companies to define a way to measure the value of security investment to the business. He also discusses some of the work the Trusted Systems Lab is doing to secure the desktop PC environment.
