Been bugging the boss for a raise? Now's the time to go into infosec

Politics and bandwagoning is a horror of the moment.

Plenty of managers and 'thought-leaders' are trying to gather resources by using security as a buzz word.

They they get the resources because they talk a good game, fuck it up because they know nothing and run on to the next bandwagon.

Nothing new there I suppose, it's just annoying it's my specialism's turn.

Infosec guys (good ones) that I've run into tend to be pretty earthy, down in the trenches, blunt sort of people. That doesn't go down well with execs who just want pictures of rainbows and unicorn shit.
