Infraguard: Protected Voices Videos…

FBI’s volunteer organization InfraGuard is a wonderful resource for cyber security.  Connectivity is not just federal, but a community of people who contribute to this group.  Highly recommended.

The FBI released videos on YouTube covering the gamut of security topics.  Although, targeted specifically on organizations running political campaigns, much of the content is applicable to any organization.

Learning IT. Got The Skills? Prove It…

Do you or your people have the necessary certification and competencies?  If not, here is list of resources I routinely push people to who need help getting their education in higher concepts kick started:

Free Sites

Microsoft Virtual Academy – Free IT Training.  Start here.  And learn everything you can get your hands on!
Microsoft Technet Events & Webcasts & Virtual Labs  – A plethora of concepts and technical deep drives. Go watch one during your lunch break.  Even better, Virtual Labs are Microsoft’s products in a virtual environment. Most have labs attached to actually learn the product.
Born To Learn – Blog on Microsoft Education Opportunities – Some free, some discounted, has a monthly spotlight/discount program.
VMWARE Hands On Labs – Learn VMWARE on their infrastructure.  Many have videos and narrative attached.

Not Free

Pluralsight – ($30 p/mo) – Recommended.  Check into it!

User Groups

DFW Cisco User Group – Since 1996, the longest and most successful Cisco user group.  Cisco and many local IT organizations sponsor.  Everything from Cisco routing and switching.
VMUG (Vmware User Group) – Another large and long time running group focused on the virtualization dogma we know as VMWARE.
