Infosecurity: In our Big Data era where the cloud, ubiquitous mobility and the all-digital economy form the hallmarks, information security has become ascendant. The area has almost certainly crossed the chasm from being seen as a necessary but niche IT function to something central to the viability of an organization. And with broader-ranging respect and a higher profile comes job satisfaction, apparently: new research has revealed that infosecurity professionals feel that there has never been a better time to work in the industry.
A research report commissioned by Infosecurity Europe, “Information security: From business barrier to business enabler,” surveyed 1,149 information security professionals across the globe and found that more than half (53.8%) claim their job satisfaction has changed over the past 12 months, as a consequence of developments in the industry. More than three quarters of industry professionals (81.5%) feel their job has become more enjoyable in the past year. Almost nine in 10 vendors feel this way.
