State University Gives Copies of Security Career Books to Students

Earlier this year, Georgia State University asked me to speak at an information session for students in its Masters of Science in Information Systems (MSIS). Students needed to choose their study concentration; my job was to describe the information security profession to them so that they could choose whether to elect the security concentration, or one of two other concentrations. 
The university gave to all of its MSIS students a copy of one of my recent books, Getting an Information Security Job For Dummies. University officials recognized that the book accurately describes the profession, how professionals can learn more about the profession, career choices within the profession, and steps someone can take to get into the profession.

After my talk, university officials informed me that twenty-five students elected to pursue the information security concentration. This was greater than they expected, and they were pleased with the outcome. They expressed their gratitude to me for the time I took to describe the profession to them and answer their questions.
