I have noticed a clear trend among employers to hire young people and specially new Grads for grooming in Information Security. On the other hand I have also seem some old folks still sticking around in management and senior positions.
However, does it mean that the chances of IT professionals with 12-15 years experience and (2-3 years experience in Information Security in the same company) don't stand a chance of entering mainstream Infosec market?
I hope we do have some examples on this board who defied age bias but somehow I beginning to suspect that age does play a major negative role in this industry specially when one is trying to move from IT.
What do you think?
