Of course, you're making the assumption that IT Security Professionals 
deserve/get the respect of having a formal "body of knowledge" recognised 
by Academia and Government rather than just being a bunch of ungrateful 
malcontents fulminating in the wilderness instead of knuckling down to 
life as the hired hands of the Corporate Finance section like we bloody 
well should, right?
