The best career I could have chosen
I found your article to be so realistic and I could only agree with you on every point mentioned in it. I am a senior threat analyst and, the challenges we face every day, we certainly cannot put a price on them. Of course, a decent salary, the fact that we have a certain stability in our jobs, everything counts, however the thrill of being in touch with so many different vulnerabilities and threats, that is priceless. Thank you for such an amazing article!

Re: Oh those cowboys...
You nailed it - being able to fix things and solve problems, and be of genuine service, are the hallmarks of a great T.T. security person. Cowboys dont last long - Ive worked with a few and they tend to fade away or get fired eventually. Check your ego at the door and do good work, and I think the I.T. industry will treat you right.
