Downers Grove, Ill. –Techniques and technologies for avoiding major service outages and disruptions will be discussed during the next IT Professional Webinar hosted by CompTIA, the nonprofit trade association for the technology industry.

Uptime all the Time: Tips, Tricks and Traps for Providing Mission-critical Services in Your IT Department” is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. CDT on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.

Airlines, banks, telecom companies and other organizations have been impacted by major service outages and technology disruptions in recent months. These disruptions have both short-term and long-term implications for the business.

“Beyond the immediate financial hit that results from lost business and the cost of remedying the problem, companies can also suffer damage to their credibility, reputation and relationships with their customers and business partners,” said Dr. James Stanger, senior director, product management, CompTIA.

Dwight W. Thomas Jr., industrial networks architect for Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB), one of North America’s leading energy delivery companies, will join Stanger as a webinar speaker.

Together they will examine the tactics, techniques and technologies IT departments can employ to make sure that business-critical systems remain operational; as well as how to reduce the chances of an outage, whether it’s due to a cyberattack or equipment failure.

Webinar attendees can earn a continuing education (CE) credit towards renewal of their CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, Cloud+ and CASP certifications.
