    New GISWS Survey is NOW Open

The survey is now available and you can access it here. Your participation is necessary to gauge the complete landscape of the profession The survey, on average, will only takes 20 minutes of your time to complete. (Note: versions of the survey in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese will be available after July 12.)

    Two years ago, nearly 14,000 (ISC)² members and non-members around the world participated in the nearly hour-long survey. We ask for your help to sustain the historically high response rate that distinguishes this vital research. Your input will be used to validate data on pay scales, skills, training requirements, and budgets. This critical research will also provide much needed insight into opportunities and trends, as well as how the profession is changing and driving other business factors.

    Your responses to the survey will be compiled and released early next year. Referenced by governments, employers, professionals, and industry stakeholders, the GISWS has been a respected global benchmark for 12 years. But we can’t do it without your help.


    Center Releases New Study, in Partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton and (ISC)² Children's_Study_Cut

    New Study Finds Parents Unaware of Kids' Online Behavior

    The Center's new study reveals that most parents of elementary and middle school students in the U.S. are not aware of the risks their kids are taking online. The findings show that kids spend more time online and remain online much later during the school week than parents realize. They visit sites their parents wouldn’t approve of and engage with strangers online and offline more frequently than their parents know – despite receiving instruction on the safe use of the internet. 

    • 30% reported texting a stranger from their phone.
    • 25% revealed their phone numbers to a stranger.
    • 21% took the relationship a step further and spoke to a stranger by phone.
    • 15% tried to meet with a stranger they first encountered online.
    • 11% actually met a stranger in their home, the stranger’s home, a park, mall or restaurant — often accompanied by a friend.
    • 6% revealed their home addresses.
