Computerworld UK has just published an article from me combining three of my favourite thoughts.
The first is that we should ditch old standards such as ISO 27001 and develop new practices. Unfortunately, that’s unlikely to happen.
The second is that Trusted Computing and virtualization open up brand new possibilities. Now that one is happening: I’m seeing more and more start-ups looking at such solutions. I believe many of us will end the year with a changed perspective of how to do security.
The third is what it takes to be a successful innovator. The answer is a long term vision and a relentless drive to keep pushing towards that goal. Unfortunately, few people have the passion and the pockets to do that.
But, regardless of your views, the important thing is to get a better debate going about security. We need more revolution and less evolution.
