IT Priorities Special Report: Security. Emerging Technologies, and the
This white paper is about the IT security challenges of emerging technologies such as virtualisation, cloud and mobile computing. The paper was prompted by ZDNET's IT Priorities 2011 research study, which revealed IT security is the biggest challenge for Australian IT leaders, and is magnified for organisations intending to implement emerging technologies. Those revelations prompted a subsequent ZDNet study - the ZDNet IT Security Priorities Snapshot - to report on IT security approaches in businesses deploying emerging technologies. This white paper discusses the key security themes arising from the two ZDNet surveys.
