From Building a Channel to YouTube Series: 10 Initiatives We're Excited About in 2021
It’s time to put 2020 in the rear-view mirror and look forward—to better times, new beginnings, and a brighter future. For CompTIA, that means focusing on a number of new initiatives, resources and projects all designed to provide more value to our members and the IT industry as a whole.
Here’s a look at what to expect in 2021, a sneak preview of things to come this year:
1. Cybersecurity Takes the Spotlight
With cybersecurity in the news almost every day, most notably with the recent SolarWinds Orion hack, there will be no shortage of cybersecurity initiatives and resources coming from CompTIA in 2021. For starters, we’re launching our brand-new Cybersecurity Advisory Council, comprised of some of the leading IT security executives in the industry, including chairs Tracy Holtz of Tech Data and Kevin McDonald of Alvaka Networks and vice-chair Kevin Nikkhoo of XeneX. In addition, the CompTIA ISAO continues to grow in membership and industry reputation. With timely insight on threat intelligence and recovery, members can also share best practices and collaborate on offensive and defensive strategies—a powerful combination to accelerate the cyber resilience of our industry.
2. CompTIA Hits the Big (OK, Little) Screen
CompTIA introduced its CompTIA World YouTube channel in August, and it’s already home to a library full of content, including our first two series, “The Doctor Is In: Your Prescription for Business Transformation” with Dr. Georgette Fraser-Moore, and “Shoering Up Security” with MJ Shoer, executive director of the CompTIA ISAO. Coming soon to a monitor or mobile device near you: “Universal Truths from a Son of an SMB” with SYNNEX’s Bob Stegner, our most recent IT Hall of Fame inductee, as well as series focused on managed service providers and public sector trends. Also, don’t miss the latest updates from our new CompTIA World LinkedIn and Twitter outlets.
