IT Analysis - CSOs Need to Watch the Meter
Information security is an ever-moving target. So accepted is this idea that the mantra holds that "Security is a journey, not a destination". As each class of device has become more powerful, more connected, and the software that runs on it more flexible, it has risen above the target horizon of the cracking community. Computing power, connectivity and capability are important factors that collectively increase the business value of a device, however these factors also increase the attack surface of a device. The increasing business value of a device is also a factor in its attractiveness as a target. To an extent this is a side effect of Metcalfe's law.
