As we get closer to the season of vendor predictions, most consider less a forecast and more a lemming-like, self-fulfilling prophecy: When an ‘expert’ inspires a herd of IT, Infosec, and Intel people to follow, based on an irresistibly appealing ‘prediction’ – that prediction may, through sheer power of persuasion, actually come true. They are coming. Do not get played. Think critically.
