It is a broad field. Now going for ethical hacking is just the start part. There are many things which are required to get a international certification. And then only you can go and work in reputed firms. If you go ahead with basic courses then you cannot gain much knowledge. You have to work with bigger industries in order to find what actually is going in the market. A IT security consist of many new things in it. Like you have to work with access control system. you have to understand the development process of application and system with cryptography and many more advance stuff. So the best way to get a good career is to join some international university who is offering you better course.They might be costly but it is a kind of one time investment. International certification matters a lot here.Because they give you information on the current market condition. You learn a heck lot of things on it. Our syllabus is far behind still today. Try to go on web and find out information what things come involved in this field.

You have to expert in this field and then only you can avoid any major stuff from happening. It is always a bit risky business. When you are hired as a security professional by a company you alone has the complete responsibility.

It is very important to say updated what is going in the market. Which new threats are introduced and which can hamper majorly. This is very important. Today antivirus are getting smarter day by day. They can capture more number of threats keeping a pc secure. But that is not enough.
