IoT and Your Tech Career: The Skills You Need Right Now
October 2, 2018 | 3-4 p.m. CDT
IoT is a fact of life. Billions of devices are already deployed, both at work and in our personal lives. According to one estimate, 127 new IoT devices go live every second. If you’re not wearing a smart watch already, there’s probably an IoT device charging and/or listening less than three feet from you at any given time.
From an IT pro’s perspective, what does IoT really mean? What skills do you need to be “IoT ready” when it comes to your career? Join CompTIA’s Chief Technology Evangelist James Stanger for insight into what it takes to move from being a mere consumer of IoT to creating a working solution. During this webinar, James will discuss essential technologies, identify potential security and privacy issues, and investigate essential concepts and best practices.
Concept to Completion: Implementing a Cloud Strategy
November 6, 2018 | 3-4 p.m. CST
Cloud-based applications are bringing changes to the IT function as business units become more involved in technology decisions, and multi-cloud models mean IT pros must optimize a more complex architecture. But these are just the beginning of the changes that will ultimately redefine IT. How do IT pros stay ahead of the cloud curve?
In this webinar, Seth Robinson, senior director of technology analysis at CompTIA, will review what it takes to effectively implement a cloud strategy as the IT function shifts and expands within a digital organization—from concept through execution, including configuring and deploying the cloud as well as cloud security, maintenance and troubleshooting.
Supporting Network Segmentation in the Enterprise
December 14, 2018, 1-2 p.m. CST
Join Andrea Di Fabio, chief information security officer (CISO) and associate CIO at East Tennessee State University, for a webinar addressing the challenge of implementing automated enterprise-wide identity and device-based network segmentation and access control. Explore a wireless and wired network architecture that supports role-based segmentation using technologies such as 802.1x, Network Access Control (NAC), network fingerprinting and identity-based Access Control Lists (ACL).
In his role as CISO and associate CIO at East Texas University, Andrea plays a significant role in strategic planning, business process re-engineering, policy development, risk management and technology transformation. Andrea also serves on CompTIA’s Executive Advisory Board, Governance Board, Technical Advisory Committee and Certification Development Committee.
