Over 1MM IT Security Jobs Available – What Does It Take To Get One – Part 2

Over 1MM IT Security jobs are available to those having the skill sets to do them.  After gaining the knowledge that is offered in the A+/Network+/Security+ courses to include understanding all of the components of PCs, how the components interact with each other and the Operating System, understanding Network communications with DNS, SubNetting, Packets, and understanding all of the basic tenants of Security for IT, you are ready to move on to vendor specific solutions to networking.

By far the most installed Networks involve Windows Desktops and Servers from Microsoft.  Millions of these networks allow businesses to share organizational information, access online information, share devices and abilities among workers.  Specific knowledge of how to implement, manage, and maintain Windows desktops and servers is essential to provide a secure environment.  Many IT pros have been in IT for decades but have not had the training necessary to implement current systems.  Many learn on-the-job-training from others and use shortcuts and improper procedures, providing less security and productivity for the organization.  These courses provide the knowledge to correctly install and maintain Windows 8 and Windows 10.
