We live in a world, in 2019, that is constantly at peril of the next seismic shiver caused by this or that information security breach. Even when information security is not in the headlines, it is often at the root of whatever is making the news. The public release in the United States of the Mueller Report, already something of a legend in its own time, quickly became a tempest in a teakettle heated by the burning question of whether and to what extent hackers interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
If elections aren't safe, then what is? Many experts are of the opinion that almost nothing is completely untouchable. As computers and the internet become more and more deeply integrated into almost every human activity, information security has become an increasingly pressing concern. Is it even possible to have enough skilled security professionals to protect everything? We may never find out.
Whether or not we ever arrive at a future where there are enough information security professionals, everyone agrees that we need more of them right now. And certification is an important part of both building up the supply of trained professionals and maintaining the skills of the trained professionals we already have.
If you're one of the certified information security professionals who is out there involved, on some level, in protecting and securing digital assets, then you've come to the right place. We want to find out all about your certification experience. Has certification helped you thrive? Are existing certification programs meeting your needs?
We also want to infiltrate the information security world just a bit and get a snapshot of what the men and women on the inside see there each day. All aboard! The Certification Magazine survey train is boarding at the station, and we want you to be the next person to get a ticket for our Security Certification Survey.
As we always do, we've added a dash of incentive to participate. If you take the survey all the way to the end, we'll thank you with either (or both!) of two rewards. You can get a free digital copy of the next issue of Certification Magazine. Or get a one-year print subscription at 40 percent off the normal cost. (Hate making decisions? Get 'em both! We don't mind.)
BIG THANKS to everyone who participated in our Cybersecurity Certification Survey! Watch for the results to appear the forthcoming 2019 Summer Edition of Certification Magazine.
