All hail the security team!
The security department is most definitely not as well appreciated as they should be. At the end of the day, there's a lot of things going on in the backend of all of these companies with regards to keeping out unwanted attention that we just don't pay enough attention to. But these departments do and we should thank them for it.

Security package
With an increasing number of users of the internet world today, security lapses are unfortunately increasing too. The real deal should be the other way around but sometimes there could just be too much to handle. In due time, service providers need to somehow come up with a solution to tie service with security in a package.

On hospitals
The WORST job I ever had (everyone should have one such job) was at a major hospital chain in a major city.  11,000 systems (Windows XP, 2000 and NT back then) with hard coded IP addresses and subnet (nobody knew where the next chain subnet began),  Security?  DID NOT EXIST.  IT was outsourced to First Consulting group (later bought by CSC) and it was a nightmare.  Porn, malware, virus RAMPANT and re-image?  No firewall at all, stuff came back in 24 hours.  AND 30 systems STOLEN from a locked room.  Just like that.  So security in a large environment - some are beyond belief.  (Then there is blue tarp over a mainframe that had a water leak too.  And then a Windows 3.11 system as a server on a cinder block over a flood line).   This is true stuff folks.

This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
