Accudata Consultants Help Develop Next-Generation It Curriculum

Richland College Now Offering AAS Degree in Digital Forensics

HOUSTON, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This semester, students at Richland College in Dallas, TX, have the opportunity to pursue a new AAS degree program in Digital Forensics. Accudata Senior Consultants Paul Kendall (Advisory Services Practice) and Joe Juchniewicz (Assessment & Compliance Practice) advised the college in the development of the program, which will help to remedy the serious, nationwide shortage of trained digital-forensics professionals.

The degree prepares students for a career in computer forensics in the government, private, and law enforcement sectors with either a Cyber Crime or Information Assurance specialization. As part of the Computer Science Department, the program trains students to work as technical personnel in the digital forensics field and includes instruction in evidence gathering and assessment, as well as presentation before criminal or civil courts, internal corporate investigations, and intrusion investigations.

Kendall was first contacted in September 2011 by Richland Professor Zoltan Szabo and asked to participate in a working group to develop a definitive set of Forensics Skill Standards;  this work was presented to the Texas Skill Standards Board (TSSB) for consideration as a set of statewide-approved skills for the education of Digital Forensics students at the community and technical college level. Kendall had prior experience working with an accrediting organization as a member of the Lamar University Computer Science Department's Industrial Advisory Committee. In that role, Kendall served the Computer Science Department in an advisory capacity for two cycles of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Juchniewicz joined the committee as a technical expert, bringing his previous experience with digital forensics, security, and law enforcement.

Kendall and Juchniewicz were drawn to the project because it gave them both the opportunity to help deliver a standards-based approach to the digital forensics programs currently being taught at community and technical colleges, as well as set high standards for programs that may be introduced in the future. "It is quite possible that other states will look to this standard to help create their own state-wide educational standards for digital forensics programs," said Juchniewicz.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
