I recently attended a computer technology seminar at my high school and was excited to learn about all the opportunities that were there for computer security specialists. It seems that there has been a huge need for these type of individuals ever since 9-11 took place. Excpecially within the government, as well a big coorporations, I guess I am so excited because I thought of the field as one where I was very highly competative and only a select few were chosen for certain spots. Kinda like trying to be a professional athlete, is what I used to think... next to impossible, but it's cool now cause I see that there are lots of differnet oppertunities in the field. Thought I'd share this link if any of you were still interested...
Also, I e-mailed Ed Skoudis, author of Counter Hack, and he told me basically the same thing as the article.
I just found this exciting and I hope some of you who were clueless like me find this to be too.
Now off to get a tux for the prom lol... then study for the SAT's, ACT's, ELA's, Regents, and Local Exams...
The real question is not whether peace can be obtained, but whether or not mankind is mature enough for it...
