Security in 2017
The security of doing things online are more intense because you have people that are constantly getting into the system and hacking information so they need to come up something better for them the long run.

Survey: The Big Security Story of 2017?
The big security story at the end of 2016 was Mirai (perhaps sharing top billing with ransomware). This is the formation of botnets through the use of unprotected IoT- connected consumer devices.

In 2017, this attack vector will:

> Grow worse

> Be reduced due to steps taken by the security ecosystem

> Remain a problem of about the same severity as it is now.

Re: Security in 2017
When I was in school studying information science there wasn't that much emphasis put on security. Surely that has changed with all of the breaches that have been happening over the past few years. We need more security people, and there is a huge demand for that role these days.

Increased INOT Vulnerability
We've seen a 3,000% increase in IoT vulnerability scans over the last few years.

3000% increase is way too significant threat for IOT security.I hope the attention that industry is currently paying will bring promising security model in 2017.

Re: Security in 2017
@dcawrey:

Those were good old days. Certainly time has changed and so did the security. But still we haven't reached to a state to say that we are hack/breach free. Recent issue with key industry player like yahoo is  perfect example.

I agree with you that industry needs more security experts. And that is a career on high demand.

I vote that they will remain a problem about the same severity only because different threats will pop up as the old ones are fixed.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@ms. akkineni I am inclined to agree with you but even after the celebrity smartphone hacks a few years ago, we have still not seen a surge in smartphone security.  It makes me feel as though security is still not a top priority even with annecdotal evidence that it is necessary.

What you have said is so true. We are seeing that in practcie in recent times. One area is getting addressed and something else is being exposed on another end.

Re: Increased INOT Vulnerability
@afwriter:

I wouldn't decline the fact that we haven't seen an impressive progress in smart phone security features.But I still belive that security has been a priority enterprise wide. It is true that there has been struggle in terms of getting to a comfort level in that area. But certainly security is one of the top items in the list for many organizations. There is an artice published in this forum where an expert from At&T security explains their strategy on security in 2017.
