The FBI Wants To Know About Your IT Skills

cravey Did any of you actually READ the link? (211 comments)

They only want information about the IT skills of their own members. How else would they process ONLY 28,000 responses at 2 minutes each? This doesn't even seem to apply to all Infragard members, only:

"Public and private professionals
self-identified as having information technology expertise."

This would also be why it's called:
"InfraGard Knowledge/Skills/
Abilities Profile"

IT seems kindof obvious that they might want to know what the skills of their own members are if they need assistance on something. Not like the FBI knows anything about technology.

Perhaps they're looking for resources for the next time they have an IT issue/project they need to not fuck up. According to their website, you need a background check to join. Seems like a good way to build a database of IT professionals that you don't need to do background checks on after the fact.
