People have attempted to predict the future with tarot cards, tealeaves and by staring into crystal balls.

In the field of IT security, today’s threat landscape is not the same one that we faced when the first PCs were introduced, but new technology creates an exciting opportunity for the security world to strengthen defences.

How to Keep Cloud-Stored Data out of Bad Weather
