            For decades now, we have seen data analytics become a core skill for IT and security professionals. Almost 30 years ago, database and web analytics became hot job roles. Over the last ten years, security analysts have applied data principles to address security, privacy and governance concerns. The trend continues: Data analytics is not just a niche skill; it has become a mainstream competency for the security workforce. More work roles are required to create context, better communicate vital business intelligence, and implement essential security architectures. During AFCEA’s Cyber Education, Research, and Training Symposium (CERTS), CompTIA will conduct a two-hour mini... Read More

                    In February 2020, the DoD published "Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence" affecting every entity leveraging data-driven enabling technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Science. If you are using data and technology in any way, from evaluating cyber incidents to improving productivity of your soldiers, you need to be aware of how to align to these principles. In this session, we will share best practices in preparing technical and non-technical personnel in data ethics. We will examine what data ethics are, define the key elements of the principles (Responsibility, Equity, Traceability, Reliability and Governability), and discuss strategies on... Read More

                      Anyone trying to hire a security professional for their organization understands that there is a serious shortage of people with the skills needed to plan, implement, and manage a cybersecurity strategy. In fact, according to a recent ISC2 survey, 56% of organizations now claim that they have a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills. The question everyone in the industry is asking is, where will we find the skilled resources to fill this gap? Networks are undergoing dramatic transformations, fueled by BYOD, IoT, virtualization, and cloud deployments. At the same time, threats are escalating in their prevalence, sophistication, and impact.
