The article reports that Information Security (IS) professionals must be committed to professional development that incorporates the best practices. It states that IS professionals must be able to manage security functions which include access control and site security, transmission control protocol/information processing (TCP/IP), and cryptography and cryptographic systems. It also says that IS professionals must be experts in Cyber Forensics.
