Today’s organizations are challenged daily to rapidly detect breaches and effectively respond to security incidents. Integrity IT’s Managed Security Teams keep a vigilant eye on our clients’ security systems, protecting organizations by detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats, no matter where they’re from. Taking advantage of certifications and training, such as those Integrity IT’s own Marshall Darnell recently completed, are crucial for being prepared to deal with the rapid growth and change in the field of information technologies.
Marshall graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science, and holds a certification as an Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP). Marshall has since continued his education both at work and at home to position himself well in the constantly changing world of cybersecurity. Participating in events like DerbyCon, and taking advantage of training available through key vendors, such as Cisco and IT/IS training programs, has kept Marshall on the cutting edge of today’s systems.
Most recently, Marshall completed the Cisco Certified Network Associate: Cybersecurity Operations (CCNA Cyber Ops) training and exam programs, which prepares analysts to detect and respond to security threats using the latest Cisco technology. The CCNA Cyber Ops program focuses on common attacks, understanding threat analysis, event correlation, identifying malicious activity, and incident response. When a client calls with a concern that their device is under attack or perhaps they’ve clicked on a suspicious link, Marshall will use his skills to quickly assess, respond, and start remediation if a threat exists. For significant threats, Marshall leverages Integrity IT’s Security Incident Response Team for escalation, ensuring that each threat is met with the proper response so that our clients can get rest easily knowing their technology is safe and secure.
