Leigh’s Informal Security Salary Survey 2014

The ISC2 is running their annual salary survey, but I want something a bit more personal, and hopefully, localized. So I’m going to run my own survey. Hopefully I don’t end up regretting this🙂

Send me as much or as little of the following via FB message, email (salaries at hypatia dot ca), Twitter DM, or carrier pigeon, and I will collate, anonymize, and publish the results:

  • Company
  • Title
  • City/Country
  • Base Salary
  • On hire stock and cash
  • Annual bonus (stock and cash)
  • Education level
  • Years at current job
  • Total years experience
  • Gender / ethnicity if you’re comfortable sharing – I will only use these in aggregate because they are so identifying when one is a minority😦

Anonymization-wise, I will bucketize the titles so they aren’t too specific. I will report all figures in $10k bands and years of experience in ~3-year ranges for obfuscation purposes. For companies with fewer than 5 reports, I won’t mention the company. I’m really good at de-anonymization; I’ll apply that level of expertise to anonymizing your data. And I will delete your data once I’m done this project.
