Greetings!

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." ~Albert Einstein

 

Within that notion from Albert Einstein lies the evident truth that as our advancements in technology increase, the need for securing these assets becomes equally important. 

 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, IT Security Analysts will see a rise of over 37% between now and 2022.  Information Security Analysts plan and carry out security measures to protect an organization's computer networks and systems. Their responsibilities are continually expanding as the number of cyberattacks increase.

 

From the Target hack to the iPhone virus, the number of attacks on information technology is becoming more frequent and mainstream.  Many of ITC's clients are becoming more acutely aware of the negative effects of a potential hack or virus and therefore are bringing in IT Security Analysts to help identify potential hazards within their IT infrastructure.  With certified consultants, ITC is poised to bridge this gap between clients looking to secure their systems and certified professionals to ensure reaching the company's goal. 

 

Let ITC help you search for your next IT Security Analyst. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Nicole McMackin

President

The Rise of the Security Analyst
The most sought-after quality in security hiring today is strategic knowledge versus technical know-how, a global workforce study says.

In recent years, CISOs have succeeded in getting more boardroom buy-in for security tools and staff. According to (ISC)2's most recent Global Information Security Workforce Study, two-thirds of C-level managers believe their security departments are too small. Employers are interested in expanding their security staff, but they can't find people to fill the positions.
 

According to the study, the most sought-after quality is a broad knowledge of security -- more of a strategic understanding than technical know-how -- followed by certifications. This is a tricky combination. Individual technical certifications don't provide a broad understanding of security strategy, and CISSP certifications are only given to people who already have five years of experience working as a security professional.

Don't Use Your iPhone Before Reading This
 
Users of Apple computers and iPhones may be shaken to the core at news of a major security flaw that could allow cyber spies and hackers to grab emails, financial information and other data from their devices. 
iPhone 6: All The Hardware Rumors So Far
Apple's next iPhone is always a heavily rumored affair. We gather all the whispers here and make sense of it.
With Mobile World Congress just around the corner, rumors about new and upcoming devices are as thick as San Francisco fog. However, one company that won't be in Barcelona next week is Apple. The Cupertino-based company prefers to steer clear of these big conferences and mass launch events, choosing instead to host their own exclusive events. That way, its news never gets lost in the flood of announcements (as if that could happen to the Apple of today).
  
What you may wonder, after hearing about all the new phones that are going to arrive through the spring and into the summer, is if the iPhone 6 is will match up to the MWC debutantes. Apple hasn't announced the device yet, and it's not expected to announce anything for a while. After all, the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S were just announced and released in September. Though Apple has traditionally announced new phones at WWDC in June, it's thought the switch to September refresh will carry through to this year. So what can we expect come fall?

Why the Target Data Hack is Just the Beginning
