With the growing number of companies not only creating company intranet, but getting on the Internet, there becomes a much greater need for network security.
Just because a company does not have an Internet website, it does not mean that “hacker” cannot tap into their sensitive computer files. Having a secure company intranet is just as important as having a secure website.
What many people do not realize is how much experience is needed to be a computer security consultant. A great amount of experience is needed in the areas of systems, programming, and networking. That is why it seems it is mostly middle-aged people that are in those positions at companies, not the 18-year-old kids like you see in the movies.
