Attacks on websites spark demand for cyber-security experts

Today I was having a conversation with a guy I know in the infosec industry who pointed me to this article in the LA Times. It paints a booming year for the Information Security industry, but how long will the bubble last?

We as humans have a tenancy to forget past aliments and our foresight can be even worse. Consider that infosec is a non-tangible industry. If (and when) attacks go quiet will the call for infosec profession go quiet as well? This is a big concern of mine and one I suspect is valid. Still IT canges with the decades and so do its inhabitants.

Here's the article and a brief snippet:

The business of protecting computers and servers from intruders has been growing nearly 10% a year since 2006, but security industry officials say 2011 may be the busiest year yet.
