Re: employment
@andregironda   Good point. Unfortunately the people beneath the C-suite never seem to get the salary increases and bonuses that their work deserves. I think that's true of all companies and all roles, though, not just security.

That said, research shows that infosec staff on average make quite a bit more than other IT staff, and that the salary has been trending upwards.

Re: Board-level attention
@Marilyn  True!  On the other hand, there's this:  ""Many CISOs are getting a pat on the back or thank you from the CEO saying, great job this year, keep it up," Clark says. "We didn't get hacked this year!""  Ten years ago I don't think anyone in information seecurity expected that to EVER happen.

Re: employment
I'm not super thankful of this. It means long hours and less time to focus on family in the short term. In the long term, you think that infosec professional salaries would double every two years like those do of CISO salaries. Yet they are flat. I wonder why that is? Not a lot to be thankful for there!

Board-level attention
That is, until their network and data are the target of a major breach and the blame game begins.

They should be thankful for perpetual demand. Computer systems will never be secure so they will always have a job, somewhere.
