Security is a hot area for IT job openings. While the need for some tech skills waxes and wanes as IT churns through its constant overhaul, the need to protect the infrastructure seems only to increase. And, security jobs can’t be shipped overseas. Businesses need a vigilant staff scanning for intrusions right on premise.

Do a search for IT security jobs and you’ll certainly see results: JustTechJobs brings up 1,070 openings for IT security jobs and CareerBuilder shows thousandsof openings.
