New Security Buzzwords You May Hear in 2009

Baked-in - When security comes as an integral part of a product; as opposed to bolted-on, where a security fix may be applied to the product if desired.

Privileging - Authentication opens the main door, but no longer will you have the keys to the kingdom. It is Privileging which will keep you where you belong once granted entry. No more poking your nose where it doesn't belong.

Autocrypt - The concept of automatic encryption of all data, stored in any system or media.

Privylaws - New laws designed to protect your private data from taking a dump in the wrong place.

Reprivatize - Periodically renewing a high level of privacy. Quarterly eavesdropping detection audits of executive offices, conference rooms and vehicles is one example.
