The world as we know it is getting smaller and smaller. What was once thousands of miles away is now several taps away on your computer keyboard. Your data - all those different passwords, the foundational information that makes your company tick - company emails, correspondence with vendors and associates, and critical inner workings of your business empire are now vulnerable…fully exposed to any fifteen-year-old computer geek in Moscow, Beijing, or even Las Vegas.
Corporate America’s efforts to increase profit margins with offshore outsourcing to decrease U.S. labor costs and utilizing compromised automation software have created a new cost in multiplied technical vulnerabilities. The imagined protected and inner workings of the cloud have not been able to fully secure extremely large computer networks (50-100,000 users) from unfriendly governments, business competitors, internet predators, and professional hackers who are looking to sell your data or jeopardize your business.
For example, according to LinkedIn News Stories, “hackers targeting HBO claim they stole 1.5 terabytes of data from the pay-cable giant. According to Variety, a security company hired by HBO to scrub search results for the hacked files from search engines found that the hackers stole “thousands" of internal company documents.” These types of data breaches feel like an everyday occurrence.
The healthcare industry began embracing this certainty back in 2015. The very expensive and public violations of HIPAA compliance laws that require exclusive protection of patient medical information privacy have forced Healthcare MSOs (managed service organizations) to begin redesigning cybersecurity levels within all their virtualization networks. It will be just a matter of time before these cybersecurity level implementations fully extend to their host MS Exchange directories. This massive effort to combat cyber breaches has already influenced other large corporate computer networks to follow the healthcare industry’s cybersecurity designs. Suddenly, all the network/system engineering automation and offshore outsourcing that were popular for cost savings have not produced a secured path for future cybersecurity protection.
“We realize that there is a shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the U.S. and globally. Every time there’s a high profile data breach, we are reminded of this. From healthcare companies to banks to manufacturers, there’s a real need for dedicated cybersecurity professionals to analyze data and monitor security threats and work on a constant basis to reduce those threats,” said Gregorio Rojas, Sabio’s Chief Technology Officer.
SwitchUp rated Cyber Security as the #1 career to watch in 2017, with the Market Growth expected to reach $170 Billion by 2020, and over 209,000 unfilled positions in the U.S. alone (Forbes).
Sabio has recognized this growing cybersecurity need and is excited to develop top-notch, industry-relevant curriculum and training to prepare industry professionals to fight and defend company data and systems.
Sabio's commitment to accelerated high-tech educational programs will now extend to this rising public and private need with a new cybersecurity bootcamp, launching this fall.
They are expanding the highly successful information technology accelerated educational programs to include immersive hands-on-training, led by industry professionals, for positions such as Network Security Engineers, Information Security Analysts, IT Security Analysts, Security Engineers, Information Security Engineers, Security Analysts, and Cybersecurity Specialists. They will be targeting high aptitude students with knowledge and/or experience with network protocols and network systems topology and design. Students with software development experience are a plus.
