A reliable system needs a solid foundation — and that includes security. What are the emerging trends?

In the final Patch Monday for 2009, Mark Goudie, who heads up the forensics practice for Verizon Business Asia-Pacific, has some alarming statistics. Amongst them, 91 per cent of the intrusions they detect seem to be connected to organised crime, and that networks are often breached for seven months before it's discovered.

There are further scary statistics and detailed case studies in Verizon's Business 2009 Supplemental Report or the complete 2009 Data Breach Investigations Report.

Stilgherrian also summarises the week's IT news — everything you would have read yourself if you weren't so busy.
