EU needs another 680,000 security proffessionals

#130 This is an interesting topic that shows that as the industry matures, certifications will become more important , and not less as convential wisdom dictates. Many think that certifications will no longer be required as security matures and becomes less fo a "black art", however, as the industry matures it will become more important and integrated to the business process and this is where the certifications will be targeted

Europe will need another 680,000 information security professionals by 2008, according to a survey by IDC on behalf of the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2). The survey found that most hiring managers (93%) preferred candidates with security qualifications. ISC2 offers certificates for systems security practitioners (SSCP) and professionals (CISSP), and is one of several bodies to provide such qualifications. The survey found that security specialists are also expected to understand business processes, to help minimise risks as new systems are developed.
