Posted in Commentary with tags on December 2, 2019 by itnerd

Darktrace, a leading cyber AI company, today announced the availability of its Enterprise Immune System and Antigena solutions in AWS Marketplace. Businesses around the world can now quickly and seamlessly deploy Darktrace’s Cyber AI solutions, designed to detect and respond to threats that would have otherwise been missed, on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Cyber AI learns the unique real-time ‘pattern of life’ for every container, user, and asset, regardless of configuration. It is constantly learning from what it sees, giving it the ability to detect and respond to novel, emerging threats. Unique cyber-threats identified by Darktrace AI solutions include critical cloud misconfigurations, attempted data theft by malicious insiders, and unencrypted intellectual property in the cloud.

Using the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Traffic Mirroring capabilities announced at AWS re:Inforce 2019 this June, Darktrace solutions provide peak threat detection and autonomous response across AWS environments, without being limited to agents, sensors, or logs. Combined with today’s launch in AWS Marketplace, Darktrace customers can now benefit from streamlined, efficient deployment, and better detect advanced threats with Cyber AI.

Nicole Eagan, Darktrace CEO, and Floyd Fernandes, CISO of CBS Interactive, will be speaking today, December 2nd, at AWS re:Invent 2019 in Las Vegas. Their presentation will explore how CBS Interactive hosted the 2019 Super Bowl smoothly and securely, with AWS and Darktrace AI.

Review: 2020 Hyundai Palisade Luxury – Part 1

Posted in Products with tags on December 2, 2019 by itnerd

I’ll just get this out of the way right up front. In the form of the Palisade, Hyundai has created a three row crossover that is almost perfect. On top of that, you can get it at a price point that fits your budget while getting a lot of content in the bargain. And what this review will show is why I feel that way. Let’s start with the exterior looks.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Palisade is a big, bold and imposing vehicle that screams that it’s large and in charge. That’s highlighted by that grill which is huge. The 20″ rims in this trim level add to that by giving the vehicle a lot of presence. Trust me, you’re going to get noticed when you drive up to your destination in one of these.

My review of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade Luxury is made up of five parts:

  • Exterior
  • Engine, transmission, handling, fuel economy, and driving comfort
  • Interior
  • Technology in the vehicle
  • Wrap up

The next part of this review will cover the engine, transmission and driving comfort. And one thing that stood out to me about about this vehicle is how easy it is to drive considering that it is a big three row crossover. Tune in tomorrow to get the details.

Posted in Commentary with tags on December 2, 2019 by itnerd

With unemployment currently at 3.6 percent, near a half-century low, job seekers are strongly positioned for successful job searches as 2020 approaches. By comparing the most recent data on the fastest-growing occupations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to the jobs in its own database, FlexJobs has determined which 12 fast-growing occupations also come with flexible work options, such as a remote arrangement, a flexible or part-time schedule, or freelance work.

Ordered from highest growth to lowest, occupations with the highest percent change of employment between 2018-28 that also offer flexible work options are listed below. Each occupation is projected to grow at least 23%. The 2018 median salary information is also included.

  1. Home health aides 37% growth ($24,200)
    2.  Information security analysts 32% growth ($98,350)
    3.  Physician assistants 31% growth ($108,610)
    4.  Statisticians 31% growth ($87,780)
    5.  Nurse practitioners 28% growth ($107,030)
    6.  Speech language pathologists 27% growth ($77,510)

To help flexible job seekers in their 2020 job search, FlexJobs has also compiled three main strategies to follow in the pursuit of a more flexible work arrangement.

  1. Educate themselves on flexible work options: People don’t realize just how many flexible work options are available across industries and career levels, or how many flexible and remote jobs are currently offered by employers.
  2. Identify their preferred type(s) of flexible work options: 
    – Remote jobs (work from home either some or all of the time)
    – Flexible schedule jobs (some control over your daily schedule)
    – Part-time jobs (career-level, professional jobs that offer part-time hours)
    – Freelance jobs (project-based and consulting-type jobs where you are self-employed and work with one or more clients at a time)
  3. Refine flexible work application materials: FlexJobs recommends key tactics for writing resumes and cover letters when applying for flexible jobs. Resources include:
    – FlexJobs’ downloadable guide, “How to Find a Job and Start Working from Home” with specific tips and examples for resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and more.
    – The resume and cover letter sections of the FlexJobs blog, with hundreds of articles offering tips and tricks for every type of flexible job application.’s “Hiring Remotely” section details how 140+ companies hire remote workers-
