A virtual Tower of Babel rises
The Tower of Babel is back. Only this time it's not just the confluence of languages causing discord. Added to the complexity are malicious intentions coming together to sabotage the virtual reach for the heavens. Experts predict that by 2010 over one billion people will be online. Worldwide, virtual communities are coming together and sharing information. Unfortunately, as with any large group of people, some folks have motives that conflict with the interests of others, and in an unstable virtual world, it is too easy for them to operate. As the number of security vulnerabilities increases, the dangers to corporate perimeters continues to grow.
