I’ve recently been accosted by some certification companies, and it got me to thinking of the future. IT security is a growth industry, with (according to ISC2) has 12 jobs for each qualified applicant. Combine that with a TS clearance with SBI, it seems that CISSP certification might be a good idea. Just thinking of positioning myself for future opportunities, not planning to move again anytime soon (egad, not again!).

So, anyone know the inside scoop on security jobs? Is the work shitty, are the hours crazy, is it a good deal or not? I’m looking at an average salary over *twice* what I make now, and that’s something I have a hard time ignoring. Taking care of my family is important, and it seems like the job might be interesting, if or when I get there someday.
