Will the user define security policies in the future?
I think, I blogged about this event already earlier: Years ago I was meeting a customer and was talking about the future of IT. I was telling the audience (about 10 people including the Security Officer) that there is a good chance that IT will not define a set of hardware anymore but that the user will buy their own and use it for business. Additionally, different people have different ...
Get off XP or Risk your Business?
One of the highest hit rates I ever had on my blog was one I wrote right before Conficker broke out. I called it Playing Russian Roulette with your Network. The background was, that we released an out of band security update and our customers came back and asked us, whether they really shall deploy it – this situation then led to Conficker. About 12 months from today, Windows XP will ...
Security in 2013 – the way forward?
Typically January is the month where we are asked to make predictions on the trends for the New Year. I do not like this as I am an engineer and not a fortune tellerJ. But there are things we know and things we definitely need to drive this year. I would actually put it into the context of typical hygiene of any IT environment. Let's try to understand, where we stand ...
The Directory in the Cloud?
It seems that it is an eternity ago – and it is. Pretty much three years ago, Doug Cavit and me published a paper called the Cloud Computing Security Considerations. Even though it is three years, the paper is still worth reading as the content still applies. What we basically said was, that if you look at the Cloud, there are five areas of Considerations: Compliance and Risk Management: Organizations shifting ...
Bring Your Own Device or Consumerization of IT are fairly hot themes in a lot of customer organizations. When I talk to customers, there are typically different reactions, once we bring this up. Some tell us, that it is not part of their strategy; some tell us that they plan to do it but that . . . → Read More: Consumerization of IT–How to address this
As I said in one of my recent posts Comparing Windows Phone 7 and iPhone, there are very few apps I am (and now was) missing on my Windows Phone 7 compared to what I know of the iPhone Apps. Actually the one which I was really missing was something like Peaks on the iPhone . . . → Read More: Finally I have the app: TouchMountain–a “must have” (at least for me)
I tried to convince my wife that using the Windows Phone 7 to keep track of the shopping to do is a cool idea. Well, she is not there (yet). And now I saw the latest commercial…
Probably I should convince my kids, not my wife

Over the course of the last few years we have seen some countries having constantly low infection rates. So, our team in Trustworthy Computing started to ask the question why this is the case. The countries are Austria, Finland, Germany and Japan. I think it is worth y look at them:

A good paper: NSA – Best Practices for Keeping Your Home Network Secure
The world got small, didn’t it? This afternoon I decided to leave home early and go to the mountains. However, I had some conference calls tonight, where we usually use Lync (successor of Communicator). So, as I do not have a fixed line there, I dialed in with my 3G card, which gave me . . . → Read More: The New World of Work

It is kind of strange, whenever I talk to governments and customers, everybody seems to agree that basic malware protection should be for free or even integrated into the OS. I am talking about malware, which is “installed” by the user as well…
However, it seems that not everybody is happy… Security firms blast Microsoft . . . → Read More: Basic Malware Protection for Free?
I guess you do not know the problem: My kids come home from school and want an iPod – I want them to use a Zune as I am convinced that iTunes is one of the worst software I have ever seen (besides RealPlayer), I hate the lock-in into the store and the iPod user . . . → Read More: Time to sell your iPhone
