Subject: IT Security

I am a student in a BIT program.  I am interested in the IT Security field 
and trying to get some information on what is needed to get in that field 
or what to learn or steps to take.  If you can give me any help at all it 
would be greatly appreciated.  And if you can get back today that would even 
be better, I have a paper due on this tomorrow morning.  Any suggestions for 
websites would also be appreciated. Thank You.    Katina Rembert at email

Well, you flunked the three tests of security.

1.	You waited 'till the last minute.  Security is like Y2K...without
	the deadline.

2.	You're asking us to do all the work for you.  Security entails 
	hours of serious -- often tedious -- work only occasionally 
	punctuated by panic or revelation.

3.	You're looking for quick and easy answers.  Security requires
	thinking for yourself and doing your own research, most of which
	leads to more questions than answers.

Consider a career with iDefense.
