Welcome to the December 2015 Newsletter.
In our Jan-Feb 2016 issue, we will be bringing you some of the top predictions from the experts about what will be uppermost in people’s minds, security wise, as we enter another year. It makes for intriguing, and often disturbing, reading.

Meanwhile, global research analyst Gartner has this to say, as far as cloud security is concerned: “Through 2020, 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer's fault. Security concerns remain the most common reason for avoiding the use of public cloud services. However, only a small percentage of the security incidents impacting enterprises using the cloud have been due to vulnerabilities that were the provider's fault. This does not mean that organisations should assume that using a cloud means that whatever they do within that cloud will necessarily be secure.

“The characteristics of the parts of the cloud stack under customer control can make cloud computing a highly efficient way for naive users to leverage poor practices, which can easily result in widespread security or compliance failures. The growing recognition of the enterprise's responsibility for the appropriate use of the public cloud is reflected in the growing market for cloud control tools.”

Gartner continues: “By 2018, 50% of enterprises with more than 1,000 users will use cloud access security broker products to monitor and manage their use of SaaS and other forms of public cloud, reflecting the growing recognition that, although clouds are usually secure, the secure use of public clouds requires explicit effort on the part of the cloud customer.”
