Its the end of the year, and I am doing my end-of-the-year sweep for security predictions. People predict a lot of fun and sometimes outright silly stuff that will supposedly happen in security next year. I will post my full review in January, but this is one fun piece I liked: "Survivor's
Guide to 2006: Priority No. 1: Data Protection" in NWC Magazine

The sheer number of breaches and other events which resulted in data theft or data destruction this year is staggering. However, I suspect that it has also something to do with increased attention and heightened expectations that a loss will be reported.

Other fun predictions I've seen will also be posted soon. In fact, feel free to check my feed for all the prediction items I tagged:
