Smart-grid cybersecurity means new Green IT jobs
Information Security professionals (CISSP) will play an integral part in the green economy. Not only will they protect the SMART grid from the usual enemies of a network (viruses, worms and other malware) but they will also have a key role in national security. It is my hope that job seekers who have IT backgrounds would consider careers in the environmental and infrastructure industries. The companies in these markets may not get the glamour and hype as those Wall Street or in Silicon Valley but they have a bright future and their work is vitally important to our way of life.
