Even IT professionals struggle to get Web 2.0

Secure Computing Magazine reveals on a survey released by web security specialist Websense and research firm Dynamic Markets says even IT professionals are confused about Web 2.0.

In IT professionals confused about Web 2.0 Angela Moscaritolo writes on 17 percent of respondents could correctly identify all the items in the survey that can be considered to be Web 2.0. For example, she notes only half recognised video upload sites as Web 2.0.

From Secure Computing Magazine’s point of view, the implication is this lack of knowledge means IT managers will be unable to recognise and guard against Web 2.0 security threats. From a business point of view it also means companies are in position to take advantage of the technology’s benefits.
