IT jobs never used to be cool. Then everyone -- celebrities, girlfriends and
grandparents -- all got PCs. Now music, movies and the making of the movies
all happen on some kind of PC-like device.
So let's all agree that IT is now undeniably cool. The next step is deciding
which areas are the coolest. Security is hot; it's the place where IT fights
off hackers from China, Bulgaria and the little doofus that lives next door.
ultra-cool within the totally cool world of security, which lies within
the undeniably cool world of IT?
The security jobs worth bragging about in the singles bar are all front-line
positions. Fighting cyber crime hand-to-hand are the top slots. These positions
include hacker investigators, penetration testers (you pretend to hack) and
forensics. We need more of all three, in my opinion.
