Cyberchoices and the Price of Expertise

Posted by on December 8, 2015.

David Bisson comments on how teenagers are attracted to online crime ‘because of the appeal of the environment and the kudos they can receive’: Teenagers increasingly being lured into the world of online crime.

The article is based on a report by the Guardian – Average age of cyber-attack suspects drops to 17 – based in turn by commentary by the National Crime Agency, which is launching a campaign called Cyberchoices, aimed at parents of children at risk of being attracted by ‘the criminal path’.

Still, it’s an ill wind, according to an article by Kieren McCarthy for The Register – IT salary not enough? Want to make £10,000 a DAY? Time to call yourself a cybersecurity expert.

Apparently – at any rate according to Manpower – ‘some top cyber security specialists can even earn five-figure sums daily.’

I look forward to receiving your offers of consultancy work at a daily rate of £10,000 per day. I won’t be holding my breath, though.
