The slogan “Internet of Things (IoT) X Big Data = Unprecedented Value!” caught my attention as I was listening to a presentation from Intel Corporation. The scale of the IoT disruption was described in terms of things, data and value: 50 billion devices are expected to connect to the Internet by 2016. As recently as 2013 this was 0.5 Billion These devices will generate 35 Zetabytes of data! And can create an estimated value of $2 to $6 trillion in […]

I try to keep on top of the news, particularly as it relates to the nature and severity of cyber attacks taking place. Sadly, there’s been no shortage of reading material lately. Last month, there were reports on breaches at Kmart and Dairy Queen (my family loves Blizzards). Updates then came out about a massive breach at Home Depot. Then more recently, there’s been the spate of nation-state attacks on the USPS, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Sony Entertainment […]

As 2015 gets ready to roll in, I thought that it would be worthwhile to examine what to expect in the coming year. I’m spending lots of time these days with SaaS and IaaS/hosting, and managed service providers, and their direct enterprise customers who want to make best use of these environments – mainly in the North America and European markets. At Vormetric we’ve signed many cloud providers as partners this last year who recognize that cloud services and security […]

Tis’ the season – the season where I look back at predictions I made last year, the season where I evaluate and take a deep dive into the breach landscape and the season where I look into where 2015 is headed. In a March 2014 blog post, I discussed how the sheer amount of data breaches (i.e. Target, Adobe, Korea Credit Bureau, Neiman Marcus) is a clear sign cybercrime will continue to rise. We will dive into those predictions, stepping […]

Following on the heels of our Alan Kessler’s CEO level 2015 predictions blog, what should European organisations in particular expect from the world of cyber security in the next 12 months? EU Data Protection Regulation finally passes Well, we’ll most likely see the EU Data Protection Regulation finally passing into legislature and, given the scope and scale of breach incidents over the last year; it’s probably not a moment too soon.  We’ll have to wait and see exactly when and […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, it’s that time for my predictions about where things are headed in 2015. Before you break out the eggnog, don a sweater and settle in front of that roaring fire, I thought it might be fun to do a very brief “year in review” based on a year’s worth of blogs. <ClickToTweet>: 6 key #DataSecurity Predictions for 2015 from @kessalan CEO of @Vormetric http://bit.ly/1B7bA0g Early 2014 saw me counting down […]

It used to be that when my family asked me what I was doing, and what I worked on, that I’d get about two words in and see a glazed expression start to grow. That’s not going to be the case this Thanksgiving. When I spend time with family now, nearly every single one has been hit by the data breaches this last year. <ClickToTweet>: Will you talk about #DataSecurity over #Thanksgiving dinner?  We will. http://bit.ly/1zSWRmp On the retail front […]

A bit over a week ago some of our senior executives were in New York for a CSO summit. Our own CSO (Sol Cates) and CEO (Alan Kessler) were among those attending. One observation from the summit – this year’s sad (and still growing) total of data breaches is causing people to pause and reflect about how their security dollars are being spent, and how they could be used more effectively. <ClicktoTweet>: Twin Drivers to Reprioritize IT Security Spending @akicklighter […]
