Infosec career guide

ComputerWeekly has flagged up a new report from (ISC)2 (the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium) which contains various items of useful career information for security professionals, including job descriptions, likely salaries, career advice and listings of professionally recognised information security courses.

CW highlights the following fact: “More than 1.5 million people work in information security worldwide. The (ISC)2 expects that number to reach more than 2 million by 2010, an annual growth rate of 7.8%.”

As both the guide and the organisation give prominence to IT governance this should hopefully be a valuable tool in helping the next generation of CIOs prepare for the challenges of the boardroom.
