Red and Blue teaming is a commonly used technique for honing the skills of information security teams. But setting them up and ensuring you have access to enough appropriately skilled participants can be a challenge for many businesses.

The only thing we can be certain of is networks will only become more complex. One of the big challenges is more and more data is being created, stored, analysed and used on the edges of the network. And tat means lots of separate systems. Cisco expects the Intercloud to do for the cloud what the Internet did for networks.
Technology has changed the way we work.
The workplace is no longer restricted to the office or a boardroom. It exists wherever we are -- at home, on the road, in the air or at the beach -- and is reliant upon a solid internet connection.
