Cloud security
Cloud storage is absolutely going to become the number one way to store data - why should I set up a RAID setup when I can pay someone else to do it remotely? But I am unsure of how cloud security works and how safe it is - the companies are opaque and they speak in useless jargon to describe the encryption levels. How can we know how secure that data is once it leaves our computers? I think a combination of cloud and physical storage is probably good for data storage and database management.

Application sandboxing
Application sandboxing is controversial because its complexity can cause more security problems than the sandbox was originally designed to prevent. The sandbox has to contain all the files the application needs to execute, which can also create problems between applications that need to interact with one another. For example, if a developer builds an application that needs to interact with a device's contacts list, sandboxing would cause that application to lose important functionality.

Is there a solution for the above example?

re: 7 Top Information Security Trends For 2013
It is good to read about what the biggest security trends of 2013 are going to be. I think that last one on the list was probably going to be the obvious, digital wallets has trouble for consumers, and opportunity for hackers written all over it. It is no surprise that this made the list, I am however surprised that this is forecast to have due a growth that the need for advanced security was among the top 7. Cloud computing an individualization I would have imagined filling the top 10 slots.
