Ponemon Institute recently released their  Cyber megratrends as listed below. While I agree with these I think there were a couple that could easily be added to the list. First, I would either add or modify Web 2.0 into Web 3.0. Lets look to what is going to happen versus what is happening. Incremental change may not be the trend.  Secondly, I suggest adding Vendor Risk Management. The vendor does not have to be offshore to pose a problem. Vendors are so integrated into companies and business processes that they are like an employee but are not subjected to the same Network Security Assessment requirements in many cases.

Its a difficult thing to try and forecast. The good thing about it is that no one really remembers your forecaste anyway.
