Websense 2007 Security Predictions


* Web 2.0 security issues continue to escalate: Functionality has beaten security once again and Web 2.0 enabling technologies are being rolled out en mass with security often being an after thought. We see several areas of concern:

* User-created content: As mentioned in 2006 we believe that empowering end-users with creative, dynamic, content control will lead to increased security problems. This is an elevated concern due to the popularity of such sites.

* Social Networks: The large population of users and ability to link users through profiles and networks lead us to believe that more security issues will arise within these communities. This is not unique to entertainment social networks either as there are several business networks of users linking for employment recruiting, business development, and other business-related reasons.
