From: K REMBERT (email@example.com) To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Thu, 30 Aug 2001 11:08:06 -0700 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 address email@example.com

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. .c
