India is second-class when it comes to IT Security...

Figured I would share some facts regarding India when it comes to IT Security...



According to ACIS Professional Centre president Prinya Hom-anek, the eight economies in Asia Pacific that have at least 200 CISSP members are South Korea with 1,991 members, 1,315 in Hong Kong, 935 in Singapore, 923 in India, 898 in Australia, 883 in Japan, 400 in China, and 244 members in Taiwan. Thailand has 98.

When it comes to pursuit of other IT certifications related to security, India is even further behind. When you consider the fact that the CISSP exam is a mile wide and an inch deep, folks in India should be able to pass it with ease, but the numbers reflect otherwise. Did you know that out of these otherwise abysmal numbers that the majority are held by Cognizant and that Infosys and Wipro are a distant second and third? TCS, HCL and Satyam numbers aren't even worth mentioning...

One could read into the numbers as assume that there are lots of junior folks practicing security in India who don't even understand the basics and that large enterprises may do better looking to another outsourcing destination...
