The beginning of the year is when budgets for the forthcoming year are made available, when many new projects are teed off, and the security conference season starts.
As the New Year starts, many people look forward to what it will bring, and for many this involves looking at upcoming budgets and deciding on what to spend the money earmarked for information security needs.
While many organizations are aware of the threat coming from internal sources, they are often reluctant to acknowledge it as it implies they don't trust their employees.
Our tendency to blame others for security failings does not stop at the victims of security breaches.
Trust is the foundation for many of our relationships, both in our personal and business life.
