Security and risk management are the top in-demand skills according to Cisco survey

970 Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) holders, 79 countries, businesses of all sizes, from Fortune 500 to small companies: these are the numbers of the last Cisco survey about the top tech trends and skills for the future.

CCIEs identify as the top trends for the next five years virtualization and collaboration via unified communication, whilst the networking skills in greatest demand will be IT Security and risk management.

Firebrand Training is currently observing an increase in the interest for IT Security courses. The shortage of certified IT Security professionals is an issue that interests both the public and the private sectors, as proven by the recent attacks to organizations’ databases.
