Microsoft sponsors security career guide

A nonprofit organization with help from Microsoft has created a "career
guide" to spark interest for the information security profession among high
school and college students.

The guide was distributed last month to more than 3,500 school counselors,
administrators and educators at education conferences and has been made
available online, the International Information Systems Security
Certification Consortium, or (ISC)2, said this week.

Microsoft sponsored the 35-page guide, which is titled "Decoding the
Information Security Profession." The booklet offers a description of
information security, typical jobs, titles, industries and organizations,
professional requirements, certification options, typical salaries, career
outlook, and a listing of schools, education facilities, certification
companies and other resources and associations.

The guide can be found at:
