It seems to be a little different from the traditional security mindset found in the corporate or military security world. A lot of sharp people with that background try to move into ISP security, but they often have a difficult time making the transition. The government is about to spend a lot of money training students in "cybersecurity." Congressional aides have been coming to Internet conferences asking people what should Congress spend money on. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A33471-2002Mar28.html But are the students really getting the right training for working in a public network such as an ISP?
