Security practitioners are looking for ways to perform their job more efficiently as they face increased demands on their time during the COVID-19 pandemic, said Zane Schweer, director of marketing communications at Global Knowledge. Schweer said users are increasingly turning to certifications to close skill gaps around emerging technologies, boost productivity and help meet client requirements.

When it comes to beefing up on cutting-edge technology, Schweer said it’s often helpful to learn things directly from the manufacturer that have been authorized by the manufacturers. Vendor-specific certifications around public cloud security, administering and engineering firewalls and identity and access management have been all the rage in recent years, according to experts who spoke with CRN.
