IBM RELASED ITS eighth podcast in the series, "IBM and the Future of . . ." yesterday on its investor web site. The podcast is called "IBM and the Future of Crime" (click the fingerprint to see the synopsis) and it's a 7MB download. The audio session discusses how the first years of the 21st century have witnessed a watershed in the nature of crime. It's cybercrime now, with identity theft, extortion and blackmail. You will be phished, scammed and bullied online sometime during your working life. Management priorities, crime-fighting resources, investment and education are at the start of a rapid adjustment. IBM's podcast with Ben Edwards, Charles Palmer, head of security and privacy for IBM Research, and Bob Bragdon, publisher of CSO Magazine, discusses the professionalisation of cybercrime, how best to fight cybercriminals and emerging security technologies and practices.
