About Are You Cyber Ready?

Today the world of IT is changing faster than ever. You might have a degree or two, but what you've learned is fast becoming irrelevant as the fabric of IT undergoes a rapid change like we've never seen before.

Advances like robotics, AI and machine learning, brainwear, drone technology, sensor tech cloud computing, fog computing, IoT, virtual and mixed reality and more—all these technologies are coming into mainstream IT as they require their own security, data and analytics, management and deployment. This doesn't even include the changes in classic IT such as open networking, NetDevOps, elastic fabrics, terabit networking, LPWANs and the list goes on.

These technologies will impact the IT role you perform today. The problem is that, even today, most IT degrees do not cover these promising areas, and if they do, they do so shallowly.

So, what’s a professional to do? Give up? Change careers? With an understanding of the landscape—who is doing what, where tech is going and what options you have available to stay current and relevant—there’s no reason that capable IT professionals can't come out on top.
