Interested to know who the big players are in regards to organizations providing consultant/contractor services in the industry of Information Security/Information Assurance. I'm currently in the Washington DC metro area and have recently considered moving to San Diego, however, it seems based on indeed, dice, and monster that relatively few jobs exist in my industry which is HUGE here.
I would appreciate any insight anyone has, especially which companies would be good to examine? I know SAIC, Booz Allen, and Northrup Grumman are there.
Specifically I would be very much appreciative if anyone knew of any companies with positions for enterprise wide security with a focus on technology products, or information security policy/procedures.
Also it seems like the salaries are less in San Diego than in DC for things like information assurance, clearances and the CISSP. However, it appears that IT like programming/DBA skills are more in line with the salaries that are for security skills out east. Thoughts? Is this just a misunderstanding?
Again, thanks for your time!
