Growing corporations in Texas are approaching us more and more with the need for professionals skilled in security measures. Keeping organizational data under key and lock which protecting personally identifiable information is no-no longer a nice-to-have, it’s an absolute imperative for a company’s success.
So why is it that good information security analysts are so hard to come by? In the good old days, it was considered noble to rise up and secure the kingdom. We still feel that protecting infrastructure, corporate reputation, and confidential information from nefarious parties is an incredibly dignified role to play.
