If you’re not busy during this pandemic and have been wondering how you can brush up on your resume to enhance your cybersecurity credentials, CRN has just the thing for you. CRN published their list of the 11 hottest Cybersecurity Certifications for 2020 in late September.
The list includes some obvious ones, including AWS Certified Security, which should be an important one to consider given how prevalent AWS’s use is with the move to the cloud. The list also includes CCSP, Certified Cloud Security Professional, from ISC^2, a well recognized certification and one that definitely adds to a cybersecurity professional’s credentials.
The list also includes plenty of vendor offered certifications as well as a few other certifications offered by key security organizations. It’s a good list to start with, and should give you plenty of ideas of how to spend your free time, if you’re looking for ways to spruce up your resume, and get some great knowledge training at the same time.
If you’re not familiar with Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP), it may be a good time to learn about RASP as well with the recent finalization of the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST)’s SP800-53 Revision 5 update.
RASP solutions like the one from K2 Cyber Security offer significant application protection while at the same time using minimal resources and adding negligible latency to an application. K2 Security Platform uses runtime deterministic security to monitor the application and has a deep understanding of the application’s control flows, DNA and execution. By validating the application’s control flows, deterministic security is based on the application itself, rather than relying on past attacks to determine a zero day attack. Deterministic security results in the detection of sophisticated zero day attacks and also protects from application from the risks listed in the OWASP Top Ten, including XSS and SQL Injection.
K2’s Next Generation Application Workload Protection Platform addresses today’s need for runtime security in an easy to use, easy to deploy solution. K2’s unique deterministic security detects new attacks without the need to rely on past attack knowledge, is lightweight, and adds under a millisecond of latency to the running application. To aid in quick remediation of vulnerabilities, K2 also provides detailed attack telemetry including the code module and line number being in the code being attacked, while at the same time integrating with leading firewalls to do real time attacker blocking.
