This week the folks of Black Hat released the results of a survey of previous conference attendees to get the pulse of the security community on a number of fronts. Particularly illuminating were several of the answers to career-related questions. Most security pros surveyed reported that they're stable in the positions they're at and that they could definitely use more help in the way of increased staffing at their firms.

We've put together the results from the Black Hat survey, along with a few other relevant studies out this year, to get a good picture of the market.
