Update on RSA Conference - Confidence in security industry at risk

Here's an update on the RSA Conference currently under way in San Francisco:

Fears over computer security are at a critical point and services are being delayed or cancelled because of lack of trust in the internet, according to RSA Security president Art Coviello.

Speaking at his keynote presentation at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, Coviello said that the industry was suffering under the assaults of spam, hacking and malicious software. To fight this threat Coviello argued that the industry needs to radically rethink the way it does business.

"In the past year confidence has been eroded," he said. "I am not a scaremonger, but spyware attacks are having an effect. For the first time services have started to be scaled back."  Full article from Security watchdog blog
