There’s no better way to prove the importance and need for androids and smart phones except by the fact that most of you are reading this article on your phones using an app. An article that I wrote on my phone using an app. All of this has been possible by early app developers who wracked their heads hard to come up with an idea and develop it for use. Fortunately, the ‘hard’ part of wracking heads can now be eliminated with the android development courses. It cannot be stressed enough why android development courses are important. The digital world thrives because of people who have knowledge of app development.

Not only are these courses easily available, but they’re also available in abundance. Responding to the constantly increasing demand of this particular skill, there are thousands of institutes and organizations that offer these courses, online and offline – some free and some paid.

So here is a comprehensive list of what is taught in these courses –
 A complete study of Java which is used for android and apps.
 Authentic coding, i.e., not blindly copy-pasting.
 Creating apps using different developers.
 Making clone apps of established and popular apps.
 Object Oriented Programming, Data Structures and other such concepts.
 Software Designing.
 Deploying the apps in Google Play Store.
 Employment of API, Geolocation.
 Understanding advanced features of android.
 Designing apps so well that you get paid for it.

If a beginner, you can choose a beginner’s android development course, or any suitable course which provides you with the most to turn you from a beginner to an advanced android developer.

Speaking of android developers, another emerging job opportunity in this digital era is that of data analysts.

Data analysts, especially those who have a data analytics certification, are the need of the hour. Data Analytics is examining data and information, and deriving insights from it. These insights are used by a number of organizations and enterprises to design strategies, make updates and developments to the existing system or generate alternatives.

Data analytics certification courses come in undergraduate programs, non-degree programs
and as small training programs, which aim at specialization in data and big data analysis. These certificate courses hold a certain edge over the non – certificated ones as they assure the employer of a certain or particular skill set, specialization and experience. These certificates also help beginners or first timers to gain their very first jobs, helping in the generation of crucial and rare experience which is a further incentive in this increasing market.

Data analysts get jobs in the industries like the health care, gaming, travel, etc. Producers of games employ data analysts to spend time studying games and gamers. They analyze their users’ profile, get information on what they like, don’t like, what is more liked, what isn’t, popularity within the gamer community, etc. Optimizing this data, they gain insights which their mother companies use. The same goes with travel and health care. Data analysis is an organized systems where companies use algorithms to understand data, and gain insights into their users and the market. Analysts with a data analytics certification learn programming (R and Python), statistical and mathematical skills, communication, data analysing skills, etc, and use these specializations to get paid.

Today’s World Uses Technology in A Huge Way in All Security Measures

Technology has achieved a great deal here by doing something that was earlier done only by human analysis producing 'triggers' for action.

I had the benefit recently of listening to a well established American IT expert on the challenges for security strategists in these times of a literal tsunami of technological advancements. He brought out how the incredible speed at which technology was developing made it difficult to assess its repercussions for the future in terms of both global competition in business as well as the evolution of military domain. It confirmed my belief that while a security specialist could do without being a technology expert, a technology advisor would succeed only if he or she had a complete grasp of security parameters and strategies – in this case the presenter fortunately was aware of the importance of security orientation of technology advisors.

The tsunami of technology witnessed today can do two things – it can help development and a global advance on a positive note or add to the threat spectrum for vulnerable national entities. It is necessary that we do not see ghosts in a new technology, do not look upon the speed of technology advancement as a threat by itself and have the ability to visualise and assess if something was adding up to a danger potential from both national and global angles.

Security is a ‘science’ in the sense that it rests on concepts, precision and detection of fault lines. It works on clarity – the bedrock of science – that admits of no compromise on this count. A nation and an individual have two basic needs, economic well being and security. For development, technology seeks the ‘end’ in terms of product creation and product delivery but in the domain of security technology has to provide at best a rolling improvement of ‘means’ in a situation where the goal post was never static – dependent as it was on the changing scenario set by the adversary. What does not change in security is the basic framework of requirements that held good in all contexts – national security, enterprise security or cyber security. All technology experts should have a good understanding of this in today’s world.

All advisors – technical or non-technical – who are on the security turf should know what a ‘secure perimeter’ around the identified subject of protection has to be, varying from a brick and mortar fence to a firewall, what ‘intrusion detection’ systems needed to be put in place, what would be the nature of ‘Access Controls’ and ‘Inner Access Controls’ required in that specific situation and what was to be done for the ‘Insider Threat Management’. In cyber security, ‘hacking’ is an intrusion – though it is more like sabotage – that is detected only after it had happened so the prime response of the attacked entity has to be to safeguard what was left undamaged.

‘Access Controls’ begin with the confirmation of the identity of the person seeking to gain entrance. In the cyber domain, Log in and Application layer controls served the purpose. Security of information in transit or storage is maintained through encryption. ‘Inner Access Controls’ regulate entry into sensitive inner segments like Process areas, Command & Control Centre and the location of sensitive information.

Personnel Security has a limited technology paradigm and the Insider Threat Management that covers it is largely a human effort that used Intelligence tradecraft available with trained security professionals. Studies have shown that a vast majority of security breaches are traceable to conniving members of the protected organisation. Scientists including technology developers are used to transparency but in these days of ‘dual use’ they have to understand the compulsions of ‘Need to Know’ – a basic practice in the security domain that ensured that the information sought by the adversary about a protected technology would not be in possession of just any other member of the targeted enterprise. The real challenge for the security professionals lies in detecting signs of ‘vulnerability’ and establishing grounds for ‘suspicion’. An employee showing greed, addiction or disgruntlement is vulnerable to exploitation by the adversary. Signs of suspicion that the member might have been compromised already are unravelled in surprise checks, audits and operations that used special skills of Intelligence tradecraft such as surveillance, secret enquiries and tapping confidentially raised Informers.
