In 2014, Will Your Security Team be Driving New Value, or Responding to Yesterday’s Threats? As 2013 wanes, it makes sense take a few steps back and look at the state of the cloud and how it fits into the plans our customers and friends have been sharing with us. End of year retrospectives are fairly typical — my company posted one as part of our newsletter to our customers, and I seem to receive a new one in my inbox daily — but of the ones that discuss cloud strategy, most seem to be saying the same things: the cloud is finally taking off, companies are moving their data into a hybridization of cloud platforms (such as the adoption of both Salesforce and Google Apps), and accelerated growth is to be expected.
In the 1940s, Peter Drucker wrote that one of the keys to organizational success is to publicly commit to specific, measurable goals. It is as relevant for a high-tech software company today as it was at General Motors in the years following the end of World War II, and I challenge my staff to do so every year as we enter into our annual planning process.
