Institute of Information Security Professionals

Computing reports that the UK is going to have an Institute of Information Security Professionals. According to the chairman, Paul Dorey:

“Current security certifications are based on individual knowledge. But with projects such as Sarbanes-Oxley we need people who can make decisions and ensure they are based on a solid grounding”

Ah, yes. Sarbanes-Oxley, that well known bit of UK legislation. I trust we’ll also get a solid grounding in the DMCA and the role of the RIAA. Anything less would be failing those that depend on us!

Another high point:

“IT security professionals who gain membership will need to adhere to a code of conduct and take part in a continual professional development programme.”

I look forward to the code of conduct with interest. No doubt it and the “continual development programme” will neatly exclude anyone who does this stuff for the good of mankind instead of for EvilCorp.
