    My read of the article is that this is already happening.  After all,
    the article does opine that there is a lack of experienced and
    talented security folks...which I wholeheartedly disagree with.  The
    talent is there...just not at the prices many of these contracts are
    willing to pay.  I've personally responded to ads requiring the CISSP
    and SANS GIAC certs, but the top-end salary was around $40K.

    They won't.  Mediocrity isn't news...sensationalism is.  But to be
    honest, it isn't so much the press in this case as it is the managers
    who don't know how to manage.
