SIA licensing news, the megapixel future, and spamspamspam

Today brings news of a new service from the SIA which is designed to speed up licence applications by way of direct link between digital passports and the application process.

Marc Boroditsky argues that we could be seeing the death of passwords in IT security tasks, while there’s also a report suggesting that 29 per cent of internet users have purchased products or services from spam emails. That number seems ridiculously high to me – but maybe I’m underestimating the number of gullible fools there are out there. (Apologies if this applies to you.)

The good times and career advice keep coming over at www.jobsforsecurity.com – in addition to yesterday’s CV info, you could do worse than read up on his best buddy, the covering letter. It’s the postal superhighway!
