    Eye on Certification: Information Security

    Conditions both within and outside the IT industry have created something of a perfect storm for information security professionals, as well as those considering this career path. The hazards of cyberspace have risen in quantity and lethality, and the threat presented by viruses, worms, Trojan horses, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and blends of all these techniques loom large for many organizations, some of which are involved in sensitive fields such as finance, health care and national security. In addition, increases in employees’ use of insecure e-mail and instant messenger (IM) systems at work presents an internal challenge to organizational security. Rising media scrutiny of cyber-attacks and businesses’ IT security capabilities (or lack thereof), a post-9/11 emphasis on precautionary measures and the government’s various pieces of legislation regarding compliance all have contributed to the boom times in this field, as well.
