Are you ready for CES 2018?

Are you ready for CES 2018?

Are you ready for CES 2018 which starts January 9th – 12th. Taking up the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, The Sands and Venetian Convention Center and a huge chunk of Aria. There will be a lot of walking. Are you ready? I’ve written up a few hints as someone who lives in Las Vegas.

Transportation

One, the Las Vegas Monorail is your friend. Yes, Lyft and Uber are nice, Taxi’s are expensive but the Monorail is the easiest way to get from the strip to the convention center. Now the monorail will not get you to the Aria, but it is an easy walk through the MGM across the Boulevard through Park MGM to Aria. Of course, there are lots of shuttle buses too, but be prepared to wait in line a long time. Now for the Venetian/Sands, the Monorail stops at Harrah’s which is down the strip away but it is still an easy walk. You get it yet, LOTS of walking. Even taking alternative transportation.

Shoes

Shoes, at least two pair of good walking shoes. Why two, one for walking the trade show and one for walking the strip when you are done. Because if you are staying on the strip you know you are going to go cruise the strip. Make sure the shoes are broken in but not broke down. Brand new shoes can easily rub your feet raw and cause blisters. So, a couple of socks per day and good shoes and you are half ready.

What is needed to be a Cyber Security Expert

So, I attended a Lunch and Learn on Cyber Security presented by AASIM Cyber Group. One of the points brought up was the lack of qualified Cyber Security Warriors. My question is what is lacking? Ok, besides live bodies who want to be more than a live in the basement hacker, what skills do we need people to learn to provide top level security to our infrastructure.
