Report: Breaches in the cloud illustrate need for stronger authentication

The number of security breaches is rising as organizations increase their reliance on cloud-based services, collaboration tools and enabling users to access networks, Forrester says in a new report. Weak usernames and passwords are making matters worse.

Man, gotta love it.

you can not hardly get the largest majority of users in any organization to use a properly formatted password.
There will come a time when you will no longer be able to choose your own password. It will be provided.

OR, you will be provided your own IP (almost inevitable) and uncrackable RSA by anyone other than government (if your lucky).

Hahahaha,, the Real tyrants of the WWW are a comin', are you ready?
Or do you even care?

Tepid, your post should be engraved on a 12x9 horizontal plaque and hung above every office door and office bathroom door on planet earth. It would probably cost 4-5 trillion dollars but I think it would be worth it.

Cloud computing makes users of us all

January 24, 2011
Cloud computing makes users of us all

As we outsource more and more to cloud services, those of us in IT will be reduced to pleading on the phone just like our users.

Here's yet another reason cloud computing is not a new idea: For users, corporate computing has always been a cloud. Users have applications they rely on to do their jobs; they load data to crunch on; they interact digitally with coworkers, clients, and partners -- and all of it comes from this amorphous blob known as IT. Without this stuff, most of them would have nothing to do.
That obliviousness, for better or worse, defines the relationship between users and IT: From their desks, users look down the hall toward IT and see ... nothing. Night-vision goggles can't help, nor would a bridge allow them to cross the chasm and instantly discover what IT is about.

This distance from core technology extends to users' personal lives. They're using Gmail, streaming movies from Hulu or Netflix, and using sites like Flickr and Facebook to provide them with all kinds of services -- and they magically work. They're someone else's problems, and when it breaks, users get very angry.
In IT, we know exactly how the sausage is made. We too rely on data, applications, and communications tools to do our jobs, but we have the benefit of being able to see into the magical forest of the back end. We're also far likelier to fix technical problems on our own -- or we should be. An IT person would never be fazed by a dialog box that has a greyed-out Continue button and an empty check box, for instance.
