So right and there is more...
This is a great tem listing. I have to add one thing about security issues though. I have been involved in the IT industry for a long time, I even remember punch cards (the food old days). Over the years I have become tougher on the security issue in relation to performance. Seriously, I am the biggest fan of Webroot's Secure Anywhere Complete. It's fast, efficient, self updating, and no BS. My real security issue is this view. In the Netherlands where I live, datacenters have sprung up like weeds. They are overpriced, and the only winner is the stake holders who own them. Because the employees work like slave drones, sometimes they wake up and get curious about the data they are dealing with. I have seen so many successful penetrations from outside sources that it is just a joke. Linux is great, Windows is my preference. Security wise, Staff that are hot shot staff should learn to shut up. When they are working, on a VPN, and the corporate headquarters is monitoring their activities, nothing is secure. I watched tickets generated for drives to be replaced. The drives are not wiped or destroyed, but scrapped into a backpack . In some cases, I have personally seen IT people showing off their findings in a coffee shop or local bar to their buddies for a laugh. Business rated or XXX-rated, companies need to protect their assets by limiting who has access to their info. Watching a server being back doored and then being told that Open Source OS's are secure at the same time is a shame. All datacenters are hack able, and thanks to their staff using social media, there are more ways in than anyone would a\ever realize. Corporate systems need to be isolated from reachable networks. Just remember that if a movie or software can be leaked out before the actual release date, so can your clients and corporate data. When one person gets a hold of such data, their whole facility is responsible and that includes the upper management who should all be black balled from the industry forever. their next job should be at a burger stand saying "Would you like to Super Size that?".
