Our latest in a series of home-grown research projects, the Information Security Today Career Trends survey promises to be an annual study of the information security profession, examining:

  • The academic, security and business background of today's information security professionals;
  • The roles these professionals are filling today - and will be asked to fill tomorrow;
  • What they need - advanced degrees, industry certifications, business experience - and where they turn to get ahead;
  • Employment trends for security professionals;
  • Leadership requirements for security leaders seeking advancement.

The survey has been open for about a week, and it'll remain open for two weeks more. I took a sneak peek at the early results yesterday, and they revealed what I said up top. Risk management, audit/compliance and fraud/forensics are the hot topics going into 2010.

But which do information security professionals prefer - academic training or professional? In-person education or online? To attend conferences or webinars? To answer these questions and more, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey form.

When you're done your work on the survey, I'll start mine - crunching the numbers, analyzing the results, seeking some outside perspective ... and then I'll come back to you with a report that gives you a brand new look at career and training prospects in 2010.

For the past year, we've struggled through a recession. Times have been tough, career opportunities scarce.

But as we look toward 2010 and recovery, there's cause for optimism - not just in the economy, but in employment opportunities.

Take part in our Careers survey; you'll see.
