Top trends this week: IoT, Security and the CoCo Cloud project

Data-10-642x301.jpgWhy everyone’s talking about the Internet of Things

ZDNet recently reported that the Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to explode in the coming year. They proposed Machine-To-Machine (M2M) technology presents a $300B opportunity by the year 2020. It’s no surprise then that the IoT was the topic of a Twitter Chat on the ECIO Forum—prompting a post from HP Fellow Charlie Bess. His question: Will the Internet of Things lead to passive oversharing?

Rafal Los (aka The Wh1t3Rabbit) recalled the security breach that occurred at Target in his post We are all a Target—Operationalizing Enterprise Security. Raf makes an excellent point when he says, “Target's failure, if it indeed proves to be the case, was operational in nature. I'll say it again because I've said it a thousand times already—the best tools in the world won't stop the attacker, your organization must operationalize purposefully to let those stellar technologies help you. It doesn't matter what you've got in your technology stable. Universally, the one thing that makes or breaks your security program is your ability to operationalize.”

Despite the Cloud success stories—and there are many—the concept of confidence and continuity rose out of many posts across the IT blogosphere this week. Perhaps the release of the CoCo Cloud project had something to do with that.


HP has been selected by the European Commission (EC) to coordinate the Coco (COnfidential and COmpliant) Cloud project, which aims to ensure that users can share data in the cloud securely and privately.
