...btw: Where are the labs for mac? I discussed it with support, which was extremely helpful. And it's apparently an Apple thing having 2b exclusively on apple hardware. I am really hoping you guys get that worked out bc I would really really like to have that and is why I came to your site. How do I setup my OWN mac in a VMWare box in Windows? I have found tutorials online and started following them. Big mistake! My test computer was acting really weird and I can only imagine what and where that was going. So I re-imaged and haven't messed with it since....
...I have been learning about how mac's with the $20 server software can centralize User Accounts, Profile Manager, ARD and several other useful things. I am just dying to get my hands on that and play with it with a couple of VM devices. Just killing me!! That is why I would so love to have the labs. Even if we had to schedule time for when we could be on one. Hopefully, the site can figure something out with that. It is very much needed! I can't stress it enough...
It sounds like you have your hands tied on the hardware end of not being able to deploy VM's on anything by mac. I don't know how and what exactly it is It Pro tv is able to do what it is you currently do.
All I know is there is a REAL need for it. I want to do things legally. I don't want to d/l hackintosh's for Intel processors. But w/o an affordable lab to play in, what am I going to do? Wait to learn on macs that come in for clients? No, I need a way of playing with it in a cost effective manner. I can just go buy a room full of macs just to play with. I do not have the kind of $$. The money I do have is for jump starting my Team. Apple can either get on board and help you guys deliver something great and you guys charge for it. Else it's some flavor of hackintosh. Booh on that Apple! Booh!! :(
Anyways. I thought if I put out the real needs of peeps out there like me, that perhaps you guys could do something with it.
Thank you ahead of time for you taking the time to read this and for your consideration of how in the world you can make this work for us and make Apple happy at the same time. Sounds like you guys need to discuss this, you and Apple - and bring us a solution. That is what I would love to see come out of this.
Thank you again for your time and help!
Do you have a copy of the ISO/IEC 27,001 Foundation sample exam documents? I'm on the last 2 videos of the course and they both reference a sample exam that's supposed to be in one of the videos but the documents are missing.
Dig into the CompTIA ITF+ (IT Fundamentals) first. If that stuff seems on the easy side (some stuff caught me up), try the A+ Core 1 series. Even though I've been in the IT field for almost 18 years, I found a lot in the ITF+ courses that I found valuable.
Not necessarily only about install base? With limited amount of resources, It is about the scope of work, availability of subject matter expertise, and scheduling of studio and resources, and course development time. It may be difficult to understand, not many DBAs want to teach about DB, they want to build it and optimize for a specific business case. The demands we've seen in the past were not so much about generic database skills, except for Transact-SQL but really about building for a business case. So install base doesn't constitute a demand, unless there is an actual demand.
You probably already have done so but, just in case, make sure you use the Chat bubble in the Interface to leave a message with Member Services so that we can open a ticket on this. We definitely want to see about getting that sorted. Thanks so much!
This exam is retiring as you've said, there has not been a replacement exam announced, yet. This is the Office 365 equivalent of the AZ-500 Azure Security Technologies. Both exams were rather "beastly" in scope. This exam was primarily focused on the Microsoft 365 Administrator and not so much for the SOC Analyst.
I would do some searching on what you'd like to see in the realm of SOC roles. It can range widely. start there and then come back and see what we have that will fit that pursuit.
That's all a matter of perspective. Redhat is a software company and Cisco is a hardware company. Though they missed the boat on the cloud. Many companies still rely on them because of the support history they have with those companies. They are now having to play catch-up.
