Cybersecurity for System Administrators
While the role of the System Administrator,or SysAdmin, has changed over the last 10 years, their primary responsibility is maintaining the accessibility and operability of an organization’s most important IT services.
Though not entirely obvious to some, many tasks of a SysAdmin today also reflect common fundamental cybersecurity practices, such as monitoring the network for outages or anomalies, user permissions and administration, and incident response and remediation. These tasks by definition align with a cyber-enabled job function and a critical member of upholding the organization’s security posture.
CyberVista is developing a new online cybersecurity training course to cross-skill System Administrators to both manage and secure the physical and digital architecture of the organization. This 100% online program will be available in the coming months.
