The International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2, which certifies information security professionals, has published a career guide for people who want to make information security a career.

The International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2, which certifies information security professionals, has published a career guide for people who want to make information security a career.

The European version of (ISC)2's guide covers typical jobs, industries and organisations and contains job descriptions, likely salaries, advice from people working in information security and listings of professionally recognised courses.

More than one and a half million people work in information security worldwide. The (ISC)2 expects this number to exceed two million by 2010, an annual growth rate of 7.8%.

"The guide will give students, as well as hiring managers, direction on educational offerings and help them understand the role of professional credentials in the job market," Peter Berlich, one of the trade body's board of directors, said.

In a separate move, (ISC)2 has created an online career centre to match (ISC)2 qualified professionals with potential employers.
