Submission + - Should IT be a Regulated Industry? ( 2

DotNM writes: "IT professionals typically have the keys to the kingdom, so to speak, and often have full and complete access to systems containing personal and confidential information. As well, anyone can start their own IT company with no formal knowledge, training or certification. Should this be the case? I believe that we should have a dialogue about Information and Communication Technology becoming a regulated industry with minimum standards of education and training, especially in security."

  • And what company isn't an IT company these days? I see this sort of thing as causing massive overhead/increase cost, and significant revenue for whatever mismanaged governance organisation is established to oversee such regulations.

      I generally see this kind of thing applying more to companies whose primary products/services are IT related. Companies whose core business is to provide either technical services or consulting.
