From new ways of designing and manufacturing products or delivering services, to enhancing business processes and revolutionising the way we learn, work, communicate and play, technology is becoming more embedded in all aspects of our business and personal lives.

As the third platform gathers momentum, the interplay between the four elements - mobile, cloud, social, big data - will bring additional security challenges – for example, mobile/cloud developments, social/big data developments, etc. – new security challenges will emerge as the elements realign in new ways.

And security innovation will be rewarded enormously for those with courage and foresight, through the opportunities that are emerging. Lets take a look at how security is bought and managed so that change can be delivered with confidence.
