The world is changing for its worse. People in our field (InfoSec) are believing over "networking" more than proven skills. The first question that comes to ones mind is "Whom do you know?" rather than "(What or How) do you know?". This is a very bad trend in the long run. Some people call it as a method of attaining trust. But isn't this the model(Transitivity) that caused failure in trust and multiple gaps in the same.
Is this going to change in a while or will this never change?
