Conceptual keyboard - Training (green key)

In today’s fast-paced world, it can sometimes be difficult to find the time to advance your career training. Many employees are already busy playing catch up, and few have the time to add to their work skills. However, in order to stay competitive and work more efficiently, it is imperative that all workers learn to incorporate a variety of new skills into their repertoire.

The rise of computers at work increased the need for computer skills training but also created new training formats. Computer-based training (CBT), or computer-assisted instruction, is interactive, self-paced instruction using software teaching tools. In this situation a trainee sits at a personal computer, tablet or mobile device connect to internet and operates special training software. Computer based training can help you to effectively increase your knowledge and practical abilities, allowing you to find greater success in the world of work.

What is Computer Based Training?
Computer based training, or CBT, can loosely be defined as any type of instruction that takes place over the computer. In computer based training, the computer assumes the place of the instructor, providing exercises, instructional materials, and feedback to the student. Computer based training is becoming extremely popular in the business sector because it can offer quick, yet intense training in important applications. Schools and individuals can also make use of computer based training.

How does Computer Based Training Work?
Computer based training is typically based on a piece of interactive software. This CBT software is created by a team of designers, and incorporates all of the knowledge that a student needs to know. Once the software has been loaded on to the computer, typically now day through Internet, the student can access interactive tutorials, exercises, and quizzes. The student works through each of these different “lessons,” picking up skills by using and practicing them with the computer based training software.

There are costs involved with developing and implementing CBT, but after that it becomes an extremely cost-effective means of delivering training to large groups of learners. After all, the costs of face-to-face training soon add up when you consider spending on venues, trainers, travelling, accommodation, and time away from the workplace!
The other key advantage of CBT is that it allows learners to access the training in their own time and learn at a pace that suits them.

Features of Computer Based Training
Computer based training software offers a number of unique features that can help you to learn quickly and easily. Most software packages incorporate:

* interactive tutorials
* glossaries of important terms
* pop-up instructions
* real life examples
* instructional graphics
* instructional video and audio
* tests and quizzes

What Courses are Offered through Computer Based Training
Computer based training has really taken off in the past few years, and there are now hundreds of different courses available to students. No matter what your industry, there is some type of computer based training for you. Topics include:

* computer hardware / computer software
* computer programming
* project management
* communications
* IT security
* Application security
* Application security testing
* etc

Benefits of Using Computer Based Training
Computer based training can offer employees and employers a number of wonderful benefits.

Employees can:

* work at their own pace
* work according to their own schedule
* work from home or from the office
* get immediate feedback on assignments and tests
* stop studying at any time without being penalized

Employers can:

* track employee comprehension
* cut travel costs
* reduce time spent setting up classrooms
* provide their employees with consistent and high quality course content

Who Should Look Into Computer Based Training?
Computer based training is highly recommended for employees who are a part of a company that:

* employs 50 or more people
* is constantly requiring updated skills
* implements new processes and procedures often
* has locations worldwide or nationwide

Computer based training is also recommended for individual users who want to pick up additional career skills.

75 percent of mobile app fail basic security tests

Through 2015, more than 75 percent of mobile applications will fail basic security tests, according to Gartner, Inc. Enterprise employees download from app stores and use mobile applications that can access enterprise assets or perform business functions, and these applications have little or no security assurances. These applications are exposed to attacks and violations of enterprise security policies.

Enterprises that embrace mobile computing and bring your own device (BYOD) strategies are vulnerable to security breaches unless they adopt methods and technologies for mobile application security testing and risk assurance. Most enterprises are inexperienced in mobile application security. Even when application security testing is undertaken, it is often done casually by developers who are mostly concerned with the functionality of applications, not their security.

Existing static application security testing (SAST) and dynamic application security testing (DAST) vendors solution will be inadequate unless willing to  modify and adjust these technologies to address mobile application cases and meet mobile application security testing challenges. Although SAST and DAST have been used for the past six to eight years and have become reasonably mature, mobile testing is a new space, even for these technologies. In addition to SAST and DAST, a new type of test, behavioral analysis, is emerging for mobile applications. The testing technology monitors a running application to detect malicious and/or risky behavior exhibited by an application in the background (e.g., when an audio player application plays music — at the same time, it also accesses a user’s contact list or geolocation, and initiates data transmission to some external IP address).

Testing the client layer — the code and graphical user interface (GUI) — of the mobile application that runs on the mobile device is not  enough. The server layer should be tested as well. Mobile clients communicate with servers to access an enterprise’s applications and databases. Failure to protect a server poses the risk of losing the data of hundreds of thousands of users from the enterprise’s databases. Code and user interfaces of these server-side applications should therefore be tested with SAST and DAST technologies.

Today, more than 90 percent of enterprises use third-party commercial applications for their mobile BYOD strategies, and this is where current major application security testing efforts should be applied. App stores are filled with applications that mostly prove their advertised usefulness. Nevertheless, enterprises and individuals should not use them without paying attention to their security. They should download and use only those applications that have successfully passed security tests conducted by specialized application security testing vendors.

By 2017, the focus of endpoint breaches will shift to tablets and smartphones. Enterprises should focus on data protection on mobile devices through usable and efficient solutions, such as application containment (via wrapping, software development kits or hardening).

Through 2017, 75 percent of mobile security breaches will be the result of mobile application misconfigurations, rather than the outcome of deeply technical attacks on mobile devices. A classic example of misconfiguration is the misuse of personal cloud service through apps residing on smartphones and tablets. When used to convey enterprise data, these apps lead to data leaks that the organization remains unaware for the vast majority.
