Empresas tecnológicas apuestan por formación en ciberseguridad

En respuesta a la necesidad del mercado por contratar profesionales que atiendan asuntos de ciberseguridad, algunas empresas de tecnología están desarrollando sus propias academias de formación.

Este modelo adoptado por compañías multinacionales busca incorporar a trabajadores o a interesados, en procesos de educación especializados en seguridad informática para que puedan brindar este tipo de funciones dentro de la empresa.

Una es Sykes, que desde 2004 abrió dentro de sus instalaciones una especie de instituto en áreas técnicas y que desde 2016 ha funcionado como el lugar que recursos humanos toma de referencia para reclutar especialistas en ciberseguridad.

Las clases de la academia pueden ser cursadas tanto por colaboradores que ya están dentro de la empresa, como por personas interesadas en especializarse, únicamente deben contar con una certificación previa de soporte en redes (CCNA) y hablar el idioma inglés para ingresar en el proceso de año de estudio.

“A diferencia de los estudiantes particulares, los trabajadores tienen la ventaja de pagar un precio menor por los cursos, pero cualquiera puede ingresar al instituto; como resultado de la academia hoy hemos contratado alrededor de 120 personas en las líneas de negocio relacionadas con seguridad”, indicó Roy Mena, vocero de Sykes.

IBM también abrió una academia bajo el mismo concepto, pero con la diferencia de que se centrará en formar los profesionales que aún no tienen ninguna relación con la empresa.

Las clases están orientadas específicamente a jóvenes con estudios avanzados en ingeniería informática o afín que tienen buen manejo del idioma inglés.

El programa de estudio se reparte en cuatro módulos en total, que comprenden los temas de redes, Linux, seguridad de la información y tecnologías SIEM, que son impartidos por miembros del área de ciberseguridad de la empresa.

La primera generación que formará parte de la academia se reclutó en la pasada Expo Empleo, y los estudiantes seleccionados entraron al programa de clases en Los Yoses que funciona los jueves de 5 p.m. a 9 p.m. y los sábados de 8 a.m. a 12 m.d.

“La iniciativa surge ante la necesidad de llenar un déficit en cuanto al número de profesionales en el área, decidimos colaborar con el mercado y promover las habilidades en un ámbito que crece a pasos acelerados”, comentó Óscar Calderón, gerente de ciberseguridad IBM.

Al aprobar todos los cursos del programa los estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de recibir certificaciones virtuales que tienen validez a nivel global y aprovechar algún tipo de oportunidad laboral dentro del departamento de la empresa.

Otra forma de estudiar

Las academias generadas por empresas buscan formar un grupo de individuos con conocimientos básicos para empezar a laborar en el área.

  • Redes
  • Linux
  • Seguridad de la información
  • Tecnologías SIEM

Veterans seek education aid in private-sector transition – Houston …


Leaving military service is a fresh start to find a job that can put extensive experience and specialized skills to work in the civilian sector.

Finding the right fit for such talents begins with locating sources that can assist with pairing you with a job where career goals can soar.

MyComputerCareer, which is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training, has recognized the nationwide shortage of IT workers, according to Dan Pryor, executive director of education at MyComputerCareer.edu.

It is able to aid veterans by relating their skill set to employers with the expertise of career services professionals who are Certified Master Military Resume Writers.

“We can focus the training and certifications our students earn on those skills needed in the workforce, and that is why we focus on network support, administration and management, infrastructure development and cybersecurity,” Pryor said.

The area of cybersecurity is a hot topic to address in the workforce, he said.

“Cybersecurity is perhaps the biggest area of opportunity for our graduates,” Pryor said. “Veterans often come to our school with a security clearance. When you combine it with the networking, security training and certifications they earn like the CCNA and Certified Ethical Hacker, graduates are well prepared to fill the cyber security void. Whether our transitioning military are interested in computer support, networking, systems administration, or any number of networking or cyber security positions, the work is there for those with the right skills and certifications.”

Lone Star College Career Services works in conjunction with the Lone Star College Veterans Affairs/Military-Affiliated Student Services office, according to Steven L. Hall, LSC Veterans Affairs, Military-Affiliated Student Services system director.

“We provide a number of ‘career services’ support for military and military-affiliated students through job search, resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, networking, and mentoring programs. Each is designed specifically to meet the needs of the respective student population we serve,” Hall said.

Brittany Bonds, San Jacinto College South Campus career services coordinator, said its Career Services offices, in collaboration with the veteran student success centers at San Jacinto College, work together for veteran students.

General services include resume and cover letter assistance, career exploration and guidance, interviewing strategies, and networking skills. They direct veterans to what opportunities are available within the industries in which they are seeking employment.

“We assist them with translating their military experience into transferable skills on their resume which companies can understand,” Bonds said. “We are here to provide an understanding of how their military experience can be leveraged and transferred into the civilian workforce.”

SJC also hosts innovative programming and events tailored to the needs of veteran students, Bond said.

Cisco lança contrato unificado para licenças de software da empresa

A verdade que é que cada vez mais as organizações possuem várias licenças e contratos que expiram em diferentes prazos o que dificulta o gerenciamento por parte das equipes de TI e aumenta os custos indiretos. Assim, as companhias estão demandando por formas mais simples para comprarem, utilizarem e renovarem seu software e a Cisco criou um novo serviço que vai ao encontro desse pedido.

Com essa solução, o cliente pode gerar cada um de seus acessos de forma mais rápida por meio do EA Workspace, portal que permite gerenciar e provisionar todas as licenças adquiridas no escopo do contrato. Dessa forma,  deixa de precisar dos Product Authorization Keys (PAKs).

“As companhias precisam de um modelo de negócio que permita fazer compras no momento que desejarem, implementarem soluções quando for necessário e da maneira que melhor se encaixe com suas necessidades – seja na nuvem ou em um ambiente híbrido – e que ainda seja facilmente atualizável”, afirma Rosemary Arakaki, Gerente de Vendas de Software da Cisco do Brasil.

“O novo modelo, Cisco Enterprise Agreement  possibilita ainda que os líderes de TI deixem de ocupar seu tempo gerenciando contratos para se ocuparem com soluções que possam ser mais produtivas e que acelerem a digitalização dos negócios da empresa”, completa.

Os maiores diferenciais do Cisco EA são a possibilidade de 20% de crescimento em relação ao número de usuários/dispositivos contratados durante a vigência do contrato sem cobrança adicional e o benefício do “True Forward”. Esse último é um processo de ajuste anual na data de aniversário do contrato, contabiliza o consumo excedente a partir desta data até o final do contrato, considerando os valores pré-acordados na assinatura do mesmo.

“Com esta maior previsibilidade, os clientes podem planejar seu consumo de software e os custos associados em um horizonte de médio para longo prazo com maior precisão”, explica a responsável.

O Cisco EA está disponível nas modalidades de três e cinco anos de contrato e abrange os portfólios de infraestrutura de rede, segurança e colaboração.

Gearing up for Cisco’s New Data Center Exams

Do you want to work in a data center? Or are you currently studying for a Cisco CCNA or CCNP certification? If so, you should know that Cisco is updating the material that its data center exams cover. Owing to a constant influx of new technologies and shifting job roles, the scope of data center responsibilities has changed. As a result, Cisco’s changes aim to give IT pros who work with data center technologies the most up-to-date knowledge and skills.

Even if you already have an older Cisco data center certification under your belt, it’s a good idea to learn the new material the updated exams cover.

The new CCNA Data Center exams are the following:

  • The Cisco Data Center Networking (DCICN) 200-150 (which replaces the 640-911 DCICN)
  • Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (DCICT) 200-155 (which replaces the 640-916 DCICT)

The CCNP Data Center exam* changes are more significant. The new and more streamlined certification path includes the following:

  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI) 300-175 (which replaces the 642-999 DCUCI)
  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) 300-165 (which replaces the 642-997 DCUFI)
  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI) 300-170

The last step in the CCNP Data Center certification path allows learners to choose between the design and troubleshooting specializations:

  • Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) 300-160 (which replaces the 642-998 DCUCD and 642-996 DCUFD)

OR

  • Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) 300-180 (which replaces 642-035 DCUCT and 642-980 DCUFT)

*Note that the CCNP Data Center v5.0 exams were available only through July 23, 2017. Learners no longer have the option to choose between v5.0 and v6.0 exams.

If the exciting and expanding world of data centers is calling your name and you want to explore whether it’s a good fit, you should consider studying for and taking at least one of these new exams. The CCNA exams are better for gauging first steps into the data center realm, and the CCNP exams showcase a higher level of mastery of the concepts tested.

Each set of exams had some outdated material removed and more current material added. To ensure you’re up to date, here are the noteworthy changes.

CCNA Data Center Exam Changes

The new CCNA Data Center exams include the Cisco Data Center Networking (DCICN) 200-150 and the Cisco Data Center Technologies (DCICT) 200-155.

Unlike the v5.0 CCNA Data Center exams, the new v6.0 exams don’t cover any product-specific material outside of the Cisco network. They don’t discuss the fundamentals such as SAN architecture or product-specific functions such as password recovery, booting and diagnostics. They also exclude Cisco IOS router topics, network design models, and network services such as load balancers, Cisco Application Control Engine (Ace), and Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS).

Instead, the new CCNA Data Center exams go deeper into data center architecture, unicast and multicast, authentication and authorization, and accounting (AAA). They also cover new switching technology through a variety of questions regarding port channeling and data-plane separation. The exams include an overview of Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), along with some coverage of data center storage and Internet Protocol (IP) storage architecture and design. They expand their coverage of virtualization, overlay, underlay and data-plane topics. In addition, Cisco-specific Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) concepts are covered, such as policy-driven application-deployment model and the ACI logical model.

CCNP Data Center Exam Changes

The new v6.0 CCNP Data Center exams include the following:

  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI) 300-175
  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) 300-165
  • Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI) 300-170
  • Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) 300-160
  • Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) 300-180

The new CCNP Data Center exams avoid product-specific topics such as Nexus switches and Cisco NX-OS Software. They won’t test you on how to implement any UCS Server Virtualization features. Unlike prior exams, they omit Adapter FEX, VM-FEX and Nexus vCenter Manager integration. The exams also reduce (though they don’t completely remove) coverage of data center architecture and design, data center security implementation and design, and network virtualization.

Topics added to the new CCNP Data Center exams include automation, central management and scripting tools. They also discuss dedicated domain security and data center storage connectivity, including FCoE. New data center and routing technologies, including VXLAN, OSPFv2, OSPFv3 and ISIS protocols, are covered in the new exams. In addition, the exams address broad data center security such as ACLs, CoPP, fabric binding and port security. Study up on how to troubleshoot routing protocols, virtual switching technologies, LAN and SAN security, and compute security.

Are the New Exams Worth It?

No one ever said that earning a Cisco certification, especially at the associate or professional level, is easy. You might be wondering whether it’s worth the effort, especially if you have other data center certifications under your belt. Cisco exams do matter, though. They help you set yourself apart from the pack during interviews and hiring. Cisco is one of the most widely used and respected vendors on the market and has been for a long time. So, a Cisco certification carries a lot of weight. Also, according to PayScale, IT pros who have earned Cisco CCNA certification can earn between $41,029 and $127,589 a year, on average.

Whether you’re a seasoned IT pro or a newbie, it’s important to make yourself stand out among applicants if you’re pursuing a data center career. Earning any of these new data center certifications not only shows your dedication to having a career in technology and data center architecture but also demonstrates your commitment to learning.

It’s tough to earn a Cisco CCNA or CCNP certification, but that’s partly why they matter to hiring professionals. You’ll need to spend hours watching videos, taking practice tests and using virtual labs to make sure you have the knowledge to pass the exam—but it’ll be well worth it once you have the certification.

Cisco certifications can benefit you in many ways. They can boost your resume, increase your salary and prove your commitment to learning in-demand technologies. So, you can’t go wrong with a Cisco certification, but make sure you study the latest material before you sit down to take an exam.
