Precision Business Solutions (PrecisionBS), an IT management and security provider, is happy to congratulate Mark Wasicki on completing his Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops Certification. Mark is the first to complete this certification among several of our technology professionals who are working to achieve it.
From Cisco’s website:
Today’s organizations are challenged with rapidly detecting cybersecurity breaches and effectively responding to security incidents. Teams of people in Security Operations Centers (SOC’s) keep a vigilant eye on security systems, protecting their organizations by detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats. CCNA Cyber Ops prepares candidates to begin a career working with associate-level cybersecurity analysts within security operations centers.
Cybersecurity operations jobs play a key part of securing information systems through the monitoring, detecting, investigating, analyzing, and responding to security events, thus protecting systems from cybersecurity risks, threats, and vulnerabilities.
Industry studies show that the average time to detect a cybersecurity breach is measured in months, even as the number and cost of security breaches continue to rise, as do regulatory penalties for organizations suffering a data breach. Facing mounting challenges from cybercrime, cyberespionage, insider threats, and advanced persistent threats, organizations are establishing SOC teams of security professionals who can monitor, detect, and respond rapidly to security incidents before they cause damage.
“Continuing education has always been important to us, especially when it comes to learning more about the evolving cyber security threats to organizations,” said Brian Shrift, President of PrecisionBS. “Our clients depend on us to keep their data safe and their systems operational. Therefore, we will continue to invest in security training and certifications for our professionals.”
