This episode of Wait Just an Infosec focuses on going behind the firewall and inside higher education for cybersecurity, examining the trends that are shaping how we learn and grow in this fast-paced field.
Who better to lead this exploration than Ed Skoudis, President of SANS Technology Institute (SANS.edu), where cybersecurity is all we teach — and nobody does it better.
Ed is joined by several special guests who will offer their unique perspectives on a variety of trends impacting cybersecurity higher education as well as the value of getting cybersecurity degrees and certificates in this modern landscape. Our guests are:
- Betsy Marchant, Vice Provost at SANS.edu
- Michael J. Kiphart, Ph. D.
- Melissa Bischoping, a student in the SANS.edu’s master’s degree program in Information Security Engineering
This week on Wait Just an Infosec, SANS course author Megan Roddie takes the reins as host for an in-depth discussion on the evolution of cybersecurity certifications and the value they hold today.
Megan brings on special guests Brian Correia, Director of Business Development at GIAC Certifications, and GSE holder Christopher Haller, to offer their unique perspectives on how cybersecurity skills have evolved over the years and the role that certification plays in validating those skills for the job market and meeting legislative requirements. Together, they share their thoughts on why accreditation matters, and Brian talks about some of the recent changes to the GIAC Certification journey as well as the reasoning behind the changes.
This episode also features a segment with SANS Senior Instructor Dave Shackleford about Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs), and a preview of a Buyer’s Guide aimed at helping your organization find a mature platform to protect workloads in the cloud.
