Between work, and personal life, the amount of data we are storing, and accessing, is at a new high. With all of this information out there, security becomes a major issue.  Everything from bank records to business transaction histories and medical information could be jeopardized.

A CIO Update article suggested these seven security changes:

  1. Focus on security threats rather than security compliance alone
  2. Use data-centric controls not location-centric controls
  3. Social network awareness verses lockdown
  4. Reorganize traditional security teams
  5. Engage employees in interactive security awareness
  6. Focus on application security
  7. Monitor security in real-time

What do you think about this list?  Is it Hype (not a good approach to security), or Ripe (a good approach to security)?
