The article discusses the power of knowledge in the security systems industry. Education has become the deciding factor in every success or failure with evolution of technology and the ever-increasing demand of sophisticated security systems from end-users. One driver for education is the current trend of convergence, which is bringing the IT and physical security worlds into one large entity. IP-based security systems are the wave of the future and system integrators and enterprise security operations need to familiarize themselves with courses such as CompTIA Network+, Cisco CCNA and CWNA.
