Security gets all professional
Leading companies such as Royal Bank of Scotland, BT and HBOS are lending their support for the newly minted Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP).
The DTI-backed institute of IT security will put security professionals on the same footing as accountants and lawyers, providing them with a clearer framework for skills development and accreditation in addition to a professional code of conduct.
