Engineering Skills and knowledge to stand out in the market
With a large offer of vacancies and a lack of qualified professionals, Dario Caraponale points out that Brazilian professionals with knowledge of English and with international certifications are capable of competing for positions anywhere in the world. “Many people take on vacancies in other countries with interesting salaries or even in the home office. It is very common to see people changing companies frequently because they have many opportunities without having someone to fill the positions. And yet many vacancies remain unfilled ”, he analyzes.
But for him, the main skill needed by an information security professional is the ability to think like an opponent. “Even those who work directly with systems protection need to think like an attacker. The objective is to understand which measures are really effective, in addition to being able to delimit the scope and limitations of any solutions implemented ”, he teaches.
Dario points out knowledge in operating systems, programming languages, hacking, knowing how to exploit vulnerabilities, knowing how to script, secure programming, service security, servers, intrusion detection, computer forensics, applied encryption and privacy are essential contents for the professional specialized in security of information.
Rafael Santos adds that professionals in the area need a lot of dedication, be aware of the constant changes in the sector and study constantly, in addition to having a very strong networking and advanced knowledge in English. In addition, he points out that the Brazilian professionals in the segment are considered as some of the best, along with the Chinese, Russians and North Americans.
A data center technician should answer questions and take queries from various sources and provide them with the right information. Knowledge of technology requirements is one of the required skills for a data center technician.
“We have great Brazilian hackers who work for the largest companies in the world. Brazil's cybersecurity community is small, but very strong. Whoever enters, falls in love. They are very dedicated professionals and motivated to overcome challenges. This feeling ends up improving performance and generating opportunities ”, he observes.
