Every year, during Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we highlight the importance of security and privacy. With 52 million data breaches during the second quarter of this year, we not only wish to safeguard individuals and their data, but also keep cybersecurity professionals abreast of vulnerabilities and solutions.
The increasing number of cyberattacks has shown us data breaches can happen to any company, regardless of size and industry. According to Mimecast’s State of Email Security 2022, three out of four organizations have been victims of a ransomware attack.
We’ve compiled resources to help cybersecurity professionals join the fight through education, connection with security colleagues, and leadership at every stage of their careers.
If you’re looking to start a career in cybersecurity, or are already established in the field, we’ve picked top course programs from IEEE that help professionals as you stay on top of the latest technologies and strategies in security.
This 11-hour program provides up-to-date information and techniques to protect enterprise networks from future threats. These courses are best for mid-level computer science professionals who want to augment their knowledge in the field of cybersecurity.
Topics covered include threat vectors in cloud services, penetration testing, network sniffing and encryption, and web servers and application security and footprinting.
Technical conferences are more than sharing the latest in cybersecurity research. They are an opportunity for security professionals to engage with a community of like-minded practitioners and share solutions to common challenges.
Here are seven conferences happening over the next three months focusing on all areas of security. Feel free to get a head start on next year and search cybersecurity conferences in 2023.
If you are a CISO, manager, or lead researcher, IEEE Computer Society Technical Communities are an opportunity for you to lend your expertise and leadership to drive conferences, knowledge sharing, and mentorship of upcoming leaders.
TCSP addresses multiple areas of security, including operating system security, data encryption, access control mechanisms, and database protection, as well as legislation, technology impact, and standards for digital security.
Tech News brings the latest news and insights on security, technology, and trends for computing professionals and cybersecurity enthusiasts.
If you are a security practitioner with best practices and advice from your field of expertise, we welcome thought pieces that can be shared with the great security and computing communities. Learn more about contributing as a thought leader.
