When does the nerdy fascination with solving complex programmatic challenges turn into criminal activities? Is there a cultural and ideological aspect to hacking? And how do companies defend themselves better going forward?

Kasper Brandt claims that it is going to be a long and tough fight for companies to protect themselves from hackers going forward. Today, security is mostly a budget exercise placed on top of either IT or Operations. We are slowly moving towards it being taken on its own merits and we do see that it gets more attention, but we are far from where it is supposed to be. 

Over the coming years we will see more companies punished for being too slow in the transition, but also a larger group able to defend themselves. But he hopes that in the future, security will be something that must be part of any IT infrastructure as it has to be built into applications and systems from the start. 

He also points out that we need a fundamental change and a different architecture as technology has evolved rapidly in the past years hence the core structure needs to be renewed starting from its foundation and from there build up the security system.
