Key Considerations for Hiring Information Security Professionals * Follow up to June’s article “Cybersecurity Education and Training (the devil’s in the detail)”. For the past month or two, I’d been thinking about writing a piece to help organisations facing the task-  “We need to hire a security person!”  It sounds like an easy fix - right?  Not so, I’m afraid.

Why are changes being made to the SSCP exam? (ISC)² has an obligation to its membership to maintain the relevancy of its credentials. These enhancements are the result of a rigorous, methodical process that (ISC)² follows to routinely update its credential exams. This process ensures that the examinations and subsequent continuing professional education requirements encompass the topic areas relevant to the roles and responsibilities of today's practicing information security practitioner.

I believe that it’s not because they’re irresponsible, or that they don’t care about their business. I’m of the firm opinion that it’s mainly due to the Information/Cyber Security industry itself. Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) have been used by many security professionals during conversations with their clients (and prospective clients) about risk.
