Cyberpros on the March

- The number of security professionals will nearly double, rising to 2.1 million by 2008, predicts the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, or (ISC)2. The rate of growth will vary by region, however, according to the group's Global Information Security Workforce Study. For example, growth of about 12 percent annually is anticipated in the Americas, while growth of about 18.3 percent is expected in the Asia/Pacific region.

Fighting Diploma Mills By Degrees

- Surely you’ve heard of the University of Berkeley, Hamilton University, St. Regis University, and the American University of London. Or have you? In fact, these schools are suspected “diploma mills”—colleges and universities offering worthless degrees that require no work. They use familiar sounding names intended to make prospective employers mistake them for real institutions, such as the University of California at Berkeley, Hamilton College, Regis University, and the American University in London. The problem came to the fore when it was found that many government workers, including staff in the Department of Homeland Security, had these phony credentials, prompting Congress to hold a series of hearings.
