What is the right mindset for ISP security.  It seems to be a little
different from the traditional security mindset found in the corporate
or military security world.  A lot of sharp people with that background
try to move into ISP security, but they often have a difficult time
making the transition.  The government is about to spend a lot of
money training students in "cybersecurity."  Congressional aides have
been coming to Internet conferences asking people what should Congress
spend money on.

But are the students really getting the right training for working in
a public network such as an ISP?
