SANS is resurrecting its very popular salary survey. Our last survey, published in 2008, was the most viewed paper in the highly trafficked SANS reading room for the following two years. It has been used as a guide for many recruiting professionals and magazines reporting to IT workers and executives, as well as our SANS audience of 400,000 registered members.

This webcast will highlight results of this survey, with input from the SANS Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) program, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and other experts. We will examine the evolving roles of security professionals worldwide, including new roles, titles, managerial functions, and existing and planned certifications broken out by industry and geography.

We also will look at education levels, types of certifications, continuing education budgets and reasons for completing continuing education. The report will review respondent's plans for hiring additional employees, explore reductions in workforce and evaluate why security budgets are increasing.

Finally, the webcast will look at the technology areas respondents believe will be guiding their organization's hiring over the next two years. We'll also look for trends in the industry in order to provide guidance for technology planning and future staffing needs.
