While catching up on my reading my favorite blogs, I read Bruce Schneier’s blog post on IT security in 2010 (already a couple of weeks old …). Worth the read, especially these quotes:
One old trend: deperimeterization. Two current trends: consumerization and decentralization. Three future trends: deconcentration, decustomerization, and depersonization.
IT security in 2020 will be less about protecting you from traditional bad guys, and more about protecting corporate business models from you.
With decustomerization Bruce refers to the trend that we get IT services for free, but then become the product contrary to the customer, e.g., Google, or Facebook. Eve Maler also has some blog posts on this, for example “The price of free service“.
