IT Security Career Risk Management Framework

So you want to get into Information Technology? Well what do you want to do in IT because there are many different branches of it. I would suggest going into IT security, specifically, Risk Management Framework. It is a very specialized field.

You will need to know the fundamental of IT security. The basics on what goes into securing important data and their hardware. You will also need to have at least a little knowledge of technology and its history. You will need to know a LOT about NIST SP 800-37, “Guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems”. You will need to dive into NIST SP 800-53, “Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations”.

Since not many people want to do this work, or even know about it, there is not much competition. They are always looking for qualified people to do it. What you will need is a 4 year degree (preferably in something technical), an IT certification in security (Security+, ISC2 CAP, CISSP, CASP, CISM,CISA) and a lot of knowledge on NIST 800-37.
