Submission + - The Security Industry is Failing it's Customers (blogspot.com)

dremspider writes: An op-ed article stating that security industry is failing its customers overall and how the industry can overall get better. Increased spending on security hasn't been helping the industry as has been seen in light of larger security breaches. This article is promoting that instead of having individuals who are trained in information security the industry as a whole needs to shrink and instead the responsibility of security needs to be propagated throughout the organization. This means that instead of trying to train a few in information security,everyone must be trained and how it relates to their roles.

Submission + - A technical career in information security?

dremspider writes: "I have been working as the life as a System Administrator since getting my undergrad degree for a few years. I really enjoy what I do and I like the hands on life of being an SA. I have been enrolled in a Information Security Masters which I attend part time. The master's is very technical (under the CS dept.) with a lot of programming. The problem I have is a lot of jobs I have been seeing in security seem to be more managerial/pencil pusher. My question is if I want to remain technical will I do better not continuing to pursue a degree in Information Security?"
