Last week's award of the world's first (ISC)2 Fellowship to Australian information security expert Professor Bill Caelli, AO, was a timely reminder of the status and influence Australia holds in the international ICT community - a position that is often ignored in Australia itself. ... When he speaks, security experts all over the world pay close attention, but his message right now is not just for the ICT community, but for business and government. In more than three decades of work in ICT security, Professor Caelli has seen it all and he's extremely concerned about where things are heading. "I'm have enormous misgivings about where things are going, with so-called rapid application development via web services schemes and the way we're increasingly relying on systems that have no inherent or integrated security capabilities," he said.
