These have been evolving steadily since 1969, but I don't think any period since the early 1980s has seen as many changes as we'll see over the next few years. Like anything new, these changes will bring both threats and opportunities - but in this case, probably more threats than opportunities. Each critical part of your organization's infrastructure is potentially at risk from any fundamental change, and there will be several such cha... (more)
