As more and more business operations migrate to the cloud, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be overstated. With the aim of helping organizations cope with the transition, Spectrum Networks, a Dubai-based IT skilling company, is offering cybersecurity training for users of the Microsoft Azure cloud-computing platform.
“Ensuring the security of an organization involves much more than simply setting access permissions to resources,” says Pournami Nair, VP – Sales & Alliances (EMEA), Spectrum Networks. “Today’s IT professional must also know how to deal with potential threats and have a thorough understanding of storage, database and networking security.”
Small business, insurance and finance institutions, government agencies, healthcare, energy, and utilities are the main industries targeted for cyber-attacks. Organizations need the right skills to manage security controls, maintain a robust security posture, and identifying and neutralizing cyber-threats.
There is also a severe shortage of skills as well. More than one out of every 20 open jobs in America today is a job that requires cybersecurity skills.
