  • 5G, IoT and Connected City Services

    December 4, 2018 1:00 PM

    1pm CT / 2pm ET

    5G is starting to roll out now. Cities and Communities have a lot to be gained from the development of this infrastructure. The carriers have announced their initial cities. These cities and communities will have access to new services and significantly increased bandwidth. AT&T and Verizon will provide overviews of their plans for 5G on this webinar. Besides the increased bandwidth, 5G will enable the Internet of Things and new Smart City services. Public Safety and Transportation are two sectors that will see much change. Hitachi Vantara, a leading provider of video and analytics services will outline how increased network coverage and capacity will lower latency and improve the ability to stream video live and effectively analyze it. 

    Speakers:

    • Matt Walsh, Director, IoT, Firstnet and Smart Cities, AT&T

  • Practical Network Troubleshooting with Wireshark and Network Monitoring Tools

    November 20, 2018 11:00 AM

    11am CT / 12pm ET

    For years, Wireshark has been the “killer app” for network troubleshooting. It still is a key tool in both infrastructure-based networking, as well as security. Networks have fundamentally changed with the advent of the cloud, software-defined networking (SDN), and the Internet of Things (IoT). We’ve seen a lot of sea changes going on in the world of networking. Are your Wireshark skills still strong enough to catch the big fish?

    Though most IT pros can catch a packet with Wireshark, only a few seem to kind of, well, drift along in a sea of confusion about what comes next. In the next Office Hours with James, join Dr. James Stanger to learn more about network troubleshooting techniques. We’ll discuss how to create useful, more advanced filters and how to use Wireshark’s diagnostic tools. We’ll also look into few complementary tools, including iftop, nload, netperf, VnStat, DarkStat and others.

    So, take the time to join James and learn about the essential techniques, tools and approaches to capture, visualize and act on essential network information.

    From an IT pro’s perspective, what does IoT really mean? What skills do you need to be “IoT ready” when it comes to your career? Join CompTIA’s Chief Technology Evangelist James Stanger for insight into what it takes to move from being a mere consumer of IoT to creating a working solution.

  • Virtual Hallway Chat: Breaking Barriers to Growth - Planning for 2019

    October 17, 2018 12:00 PM

    12pm CT / 1pm ET
    Yogi Berra said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up someplace else.”  This is particularly true in a technology business.  Do you have a roadmap for your business? Do you know how you are going to hit your goals for 2019?  The great thing about being a small business is that you can be agile.  To make agility a strength (and not let the next shiny object distract you), you need a plan.

    Join the Managed Services Community in this Virtual Hallway Chat (VHC) to discuss strategies for setting direction for 2019 and beyond.  Discover how to balance agility with the purposefulness of a plan. Join this group discussion as we share ideas on possible directions - perhaps a security focus, emerging technology solutions and services, or staying your current course and adding new customers…?  We will dive into all of this and more as YOU help drive the discussion.

    Please plan on active participation on the VHC by joining the web portion, and having speakers and a microphone ready so you can share too.

  • Operationalizing for Global Privacy Compliance Webinar

    October 11, 2018 2:00 PM

    Date: Thursday, October 11, 2018

    Time: 2:00 p.m. (EST)

    Co-hosted with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).


    About the Webinar: Much has been made of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation and its many compliance obligations. But the GDPR is not the first privacy law in the world, nor will it be the last. Many countries, including Korea, Japan, Argentina, India, Mexico, and even the U.S. state of California, have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, privacy laws with similar operational requirements around documenting consent, providing notice and transparency, the right to be forgotten, and international transfer of personal data across borders. While the lawyers are focused on understanding what an organization has to do, other privacy professionals and their IT counterparts must focus on how to actually create systems and processes that make compliance possible. In this web conference, we focus on emerging trends in privacy law and offer tips on how to create systems that allow your organization to be flexible enough to do business globally. 

    Speakers:
    -Scott Goss, Vice President, Privacy Counsel, Qualcomm
    -Sam Pfeifle, Content Director, IAPP - International Association of Privacy Professionals
    -Tom Widgery, Senior Principal, Privacy & Data Protection, Promontory Financial Group Limited, an IBM Company

    Designed for First Responders, Law Enforcement, and Agencies that manage the security of America’s critical Infrastructure, aerial intelligence delivered via UAV’s or more commonly referred to as drones have become a bleeding edge “work force multiplier” for today’s society of Public Safety and Situational Awareness.  Monitoring an active situation, finding objects of interest, and gathering evidence requires speed and accuracy.  Drones can be deployed in minutes, to immediately and reliably capture high-resolution aerial imagery and data in problematic and hazardous situations. In today’s webinar, Frank Segarra, President and Founder of ConnexiCore and CompTIA Drone Advisory Council Co-Chair, will discuss how drones reduce operations and maintenance demands around mission planning, system operations, and can seamlessly integrate with your public safety operations and infrastructure so you can easily manage your information mission workflow.

  • The Perimeter-Less Perimeter - An Investigation: Office Hours with James Stanger

    September 19, 2018 10:00 AM

    11am CT / 12pm ET

    Where are your boundaries? For an IT pro, they’re not quite where you think they should be! For the September Office Hours with James, CompTIA Chief Technology Evangelist Dr. James Stanger will discuss elements of the perimeter-less perimeter, including software-defined networking (SDN) and the loose concept of the software-defined perimeter (SDP).

    These are new approaches, but the death of the perimeter is a reality that is already upon us. Our approach as IT pros to these changes is, frankly, a bit half-baked. The reason our response is a bit immature is that things have changed so quickly.

    Dr. Stanger will also provide a hands-on demonstration of how to use the mininet project . This demonstration will help you learn more about how both SDN and SDP work. It also shows how virtualization and containers work. So, if you want to learn more about how today's networks operate and how you can play around with these concepts, then join us!
