Wikileaks. ZeuS botnets. Inside threats. Public WiFi hotspots. Mobile app malware. Targeted malicious attacks. There is certainly no shortage of computer and data security threats. That is bad news for consumers and businesses, but excellent news for information security professionals.
The volume and scope of information security careers continues to grow and diversify. Whether it is developing more secure software in the first place, identifying and resolving issues with existing software and websites, responding to security incidents, monitoring efforts to comply with security and data protection requirements, or a thousand other roles–people with information security skills are in high demand.
