Show Notes:

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of the net sys admin.  I'm excited to introduce you to this new series I will be doing. As you can tell from the title of this episode it has to do with the CISSP certification. The full name being Certified Information Systems Security Professional. Also known as the CISSP (I'll use that term most of the time)

 

I will be releasing a regular episode that reviews the learning objectives contained in the CISSP cert. The episodes will be brief and are designed to be a quick study for the cert or just a general review of cyber security concepts. Any network or systems administrator will agree that security is a huge part of the job and the better you can address security in your role as an administrator the more valuable you will be.

 

Not to mention that cyber security jobs are slated for some serious growth in the coming years.

 

An article published by https://www.cybrary.it/ titled "Employers, “The Industry,” and You: The 2019 Cyber Security Job Outlook" has the following to say:

 

-------------------------------------------

 

An article by Dark Reading published earlier this year states that “Cybercrime damages are predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, according to the ‘Cybercrime Report’ by the editors at Cybersecurity Ventures. That’s up from $3 trillion in 2015, which is fueling a burgeoning market, with cyber security spending expected to reach more than $1 trillion cumulatively from 2017 to 2021.”

The article goes on to note a familiar stat: in 2014 there were 1 million unfilled cyber security jobs globally, according to Cisco. However, did you know that by 2021, that number will grow to 3.5 million openings? And, more tough news for companies indicates that the labor crunch has intensified over the past year, with more than 200 cybersecurity startups raising venture capital — much of that intended for new hires. It also seems that VC funding shows no signs of slowing in the foreseeable future.

So what does this mean for you? Well I think it means we as IT professionals need to make sure we are educating ourselves as much as possible in the ways of security. Then take the gained knowledge and directly help impact the security posture of the organizations we work for.
