IT Security is an ever-growing field. Every year more hackers and crackers try to steal your bank PIN number, mess up your nuclear fuel centrifuges, jam your attack drones’ control signals, steal your company passwords an other secrets and…. it goes on and on, to the point where, Hord says, over two million (2,000,000) new IT security people will be needed in the next few years. Should you be one of them? Do you have the skills to be one of them? If not, can you acquire those skills? Note that Hord works for an organization — (ISC)2 that teaches security classes and runs certification tests. Naturally, Hord is boosting his group’s services a bit, but his information and advice is straight-up, and if you would rather learn and get your cert elsewhere, that’s fine. The point is to get good IT security skills and possibly a test-based certification somehow or other, because in a crime-ridden world, IT security skills mean IT job security.
