What is Cybersecurity, General Certification, CISSP, COMPTIA, and On-Going Education
Cybersecurity, also known as Information Security, is the protection of data and personally identifiable information from malicious attacks, theft, and destruction. Failures of cybersecurity policies, both in large corporations and governmental agencies, have earned significant visibility and negative publicity in recent months and years.
As the amount of data stored continues to increase, and as hackers become more sophisticated, the need for cybersecurity is greater than ever.
For those that wish to work in Cybersecurity, certification and on-going education are important to demonstrate expertise, show credibility, enhance productivity, and improve skills. Certificates can include General, CISSP, and CompTIA.
- General Certificates in Cybersecurity educate and test in areas such as Communication and Security, Asset Security, Security and Risk Management, Security Engineering, Identify and Access Management, Security Assessment and Testing, Security Operations, and Software Development Security.
- The CISSP® certification is recognized worldwide and adheres to the strict standards of ISO/IEC 17024. As security breaches outpace the available pool of security experts, the need for information security professionals with proper certifications will continue to grow. Among other titles, obtaining the CISSP® certification prepares one for a position as a Security Analyst, Chief Information Security Officer, or as a Security Architect.
- The CompTIA certification is recognized worldwide and adheres to the strict standards of ISO/IEC 17024 and is approved by the US Department of Defense to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
- On-going education includes security training in Application, Application, Asset, Cloud, Communication, Compliance, Data, Infrastructure, Operational, Network, Software Development; and scenario training in Access Control, Application, Cloud, Data, Host, Identify Management, Threats, Vulnerabilities, and Other Real-World Scenarios.
