Re: 'The Digital World has gone at a steep curve'

The interesting thing here is that the Cyberrozzer-in-chief confidently tells us "every year the key cyber threat has changed significantly. But next year, I confidently predict that the threat will be the same as this years".

How convincing does that sound?

I must confess, that comment from plod raised a snort of derision in our office too. However, at my most generous, I think that he simply didn't express himself clearly. It's possible that "more of the same" from the original quote meant "will keep changing", especially considering that later on in the article he is quoted as saying that what worries him most is not knowing what the next big threat will be.

However his choice of wording is poor at best. The quote "Don't write so that you can be understood, write so that you can't be misunderstood." is especially applicable here.
