Cyberwar Anonymous v/s Israel

It's wartime folks, except there are no people being killed, no guns, no tanks or bombs. It's a silent war focused on bringing down a country.

Information Security education, training and more...

For a very long time I have been thinking about the dearth of 'good' education or training in the InfoSec domain. 

Then there is the thought of how will any new person get into the domain, considering that we all seem to have landed here by accident, providence, interest or plain luck in being at the right place at the right time !

I put my thoughts into a small presentation and am working on creating an Information Security Management program which will be good for the non-technical manager and the technology geek manager, as both will learn about their missing pieces. 

Check this concept document and your feedback will be welcome !
