Re: CISOs or Security Investments?
I agree with you, Jason. We're already beginning to see a shift in focus as businesses devote more resources to security. However, CISO's won't be the "It Girl" of IT anytime soon due to the large gap in understanding between end-users and their IT departments when it comes to the importance of a comprehensive IT policy. Perhaps when employees begin to think of I.T. as a part of their day-to-day routines rather than a separate entity, CISOs will finally earn the title of "It Girl".

CISOs or Security Investments?
Ericka, this is easily one of the best prediction posts around, thanks for putting it together. 

While I share your hope that CISOs become the "It Girl" of I.T., I think that revolution will take a bit more time. I do think 2016 will see more investment in security (not a bold prediction), and that this investment in the coming years will eventually make the CISO role more powerful as application, network, and data security are brought into a unified team in the enterprise, possibly under the CISO. Either way, here's hoping security practice continues to be brought to the forefront of the priorities list!

Re: Balkanization of the Internet
if we cannot control your behavior then we must limit your access

operating software that allows itself to be corrupted by the activity of an application program fails in the premise and leaves the conclusion as the necessary alternative

Data Weaponization Means Extortapalooza
I agree with this one most heavily and for other reasons than the ones cited. Not only are phishing campaigns and Drive by Downloads effective at the corporate level but also at the individual level. With ransomware becoming more and more prevalent due to its modularity and ease of use, I see this prediction continuing the incline of the current trend.

Balkanization of the Internet
Not sure this will come to pass on a global scale. Maybe setting up lines between "non-friendly" countries. But the idea of the Internet is the free flow of information, setting up walls is not the way to go....
