Comments on: Times tough for info security guards Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 By: Devon Wed, 15 Jul 2009 20:10:38 +0000 The industry in general has experienced an influx of fresh faces, newly certified with their CISSPs, that lack the insight and experience to do the jobs they have their sights set on. This is a normal trend for an niche industry like Information Security that experiences periodic swells in popularity, and when the new faces leave to pursue greener pastures the job market will right itself.

In the meantime, between the time that candidates show up looking for work and IT shops realize that certifications don’t equal ability, the perception of more workers than jobs can be expected to lower wages somewhat as competition for available positions heats up.
