Learn more here about Symantec’s top Internet security trends from 2009 and what Symantec predicts will be the top trends of 2010 in both storage and security. With trends such as the rise of polymorphic threats, an increase in reputation hijacking and the vast propagation of rogue security software, to name just a few, 2009 indeed saw its fair share of malicious activity.
