re: Security Job Market 'Rocking,' But Pressures Rise
I found this comment from Jens Landrup encouraging: ""The interesting part I'm seeing is that people are interested in more
than just compliance -- they are interested in actual security."

That sounds like progress!

I'm also pleased to hear about the gender gap in wages closing in the security sector. Unfortunately, that's not the case in other IT disciplines, including data center and networking functions, where the gender gap has persisted for years.

re: Security Job Market 'Rocking,' But Pressures Rise
While all companies preach that data security is a top priority, when you look at the budget numbers, their words rarely match their actions. Security is viewed by many as just a cost of doing business. While that is true, the cost of not doing security the right way is extremely high. With all of the DDoS attacks and intricate malware, I hope it doesn't take a major incident to change the thinking at many organizations.
