Is anybody familiar with or have the CIDPRO? It's pretty new certification but it's concerning Identity and Access Management. I think I'm gonna lean in heavy on this and bolster a rep for a career in cyber security. Just copped a book off of Amazon last week. Also, they're holding a webinar Nov. 10th
Does IT fall under control systems and instrumentation?
anybody attend WGU?
Any other WGU IT students on the Coli?
I've only heard good things, hope to go after I'm done this software dev boot camp.
How did WGU work out for ya'll?Just started at WGU to try and get this Cyber Security degree. I'm currently a contractor now, but looking to get more technical and hands-on. I just don't know which path in Cyber. I here it's hard to break into. What should I be doing outside of school work? OSCP? Learn Kali Linux? I also thought about getting an AWS cert as well.
yes equipment and electro/mechanical instruments. I did a 3 year college diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology and just trying to see what's out there and how everything relates. we did a bit of networking, nothing crazy mostly telecomm. I focused in automation and trying to learn C++ because we started with C and I kind of grasp it. what's really crazy my prof's were telling me they changed the curriculum to include more computer engineering material because that's the way the world is going. Everything and anything has some form of circuity in it.It would depend on by what you mean by control systems and instrumentation. Are you talking about the equipment and machines used in plants and manufacturing?
If so, it may be the other way around where certain aspects of the equipment / machines fall under IT, especially if there are networked controllers running the equipment.
When I worked at a MSP, we supported some companies that used industrial equipment. Our duties didn't go past the computers serving as controllers though. We weren't about to fukk with anything that could cost someone a limb.
People working in IT don't have the knowledge of the equipment to be credible beyond the computers used to control and vice versa. Machine operators may not know a lot about networking, computers, etc.
