The 2011 best practice guide for messaging and web security
The future of spam, malware problems and other online threats for 2011 and beyond
In an Osterman Research survey conducted during January 2011, decision makers and influencers demonstrated that they are decidedly pessimistic about the future of spam and malware problems for 2011. They have little reason to be optimistic: despite recent, albeit temporary good news - such as reductions in the number of spam messages traversing the internet - there has been relatively little good news in the context of threats directed against messaging and web users. Furthermore, while many decision makers are taking messaging and web security threats quite seriously, a soft economy coupled with threats that are rapidly increasing in sophistication and severity means that many organisations are not keeping pace with the threats they face.
