New technology brings new threats


...Exciting new technology such as Windows Vista may solve some security problems, but it will bring plenty of new security threats too. And it's not just me (and the rest of the world) who thinks this. Someone much more cleverer than me said it recently.

Speaking at this week's Gartner Security Summit in London, Bob Gleichauf, the CTO of Cisco's security technology group (for it was he), said: "When we deploy new technologies, what's scary is we never know what problems they might bring." Scary for you, Bob, pant-wettingly frightening for yer average IT-support worker in the front line. PC Advisor
