IT security predictions 2013

It's that time of year again where everyone recaps the year that went by and makes outlandish predictions for the year ahead. Not wanting to be left out, I wrote a piece for SCMagazine.

Here's an excerpt.
"Together, BYOD and cloud heralded the arrival of the consumerisation of IT, essentially the democratisation of IT within organisations. Employees are no longer content with being dictated to. As consumers, we now enjoy more useful, usable applications than ever before. We expect the same of our IT applications at work. The sentiment that work is where we go to use old technology is common and users are revolting."

An interesting text on the coming challenges for 2013.
You might need to add the topic of more standardized services sourced from a service provider to your list (eg. print services).
Your topics on SIEM, large data and SecaaS might simply come down to the trend of requiring a higher auditablity of actions and access to services within your enterprise.
