Although November is here, let's not forget the many lessons we learned this year from CyberSecurity Awareness Month (CSAM). The majority of issues I spoke about related to technologies that are dead, or should be dying in the 2014 Tech Obituaries section of my talk. Here are the highlights of what technology died (or should have) over the last year.
