When I joined Zscaler last year, the company had just introduced Zenith Live, a conference in which Zscaler customers, partners, and industry influencers could come together to discuss secure transformation to the cloud. Held in Las Vegas and London, I was thrilled to be a part of the events, as they drew hundreds of attendees interested in learning about the latest trends, hearing from technical experts, and sharing ideas with peers. And many came to expand their knowledge and gain technical certifications in cloud security.
We learned a lot from these conferences too. In addition to hearing about the successes and challenges IT is experiencing at all levels, from practitioner and architect to CIO and CISO, we learned that there is a huge appetite for information. That why I’m so excited to be able to share that we will be bringing key sessions and hands-on training from Zenith Live to cities around the world for one-day events we’re calling Zscaler Academy. They’re starting this week and I can’t wait to get on the road, join in the sessions, and meet with the folks driving cloud initiatives in their organizations.
At Zscaler Academy, you’ll have the chance to learn from peers about the challenges and risks introduced by cloud and mobility and discover how to address them through the transformation of network and security architectures.
Zscaler Academy will offer small-group sessions in which experts share their best practices and insights on how to manage security in the modern world. Breakout sessions will include topics such as “Building a Secure, Modern Architecture for Office 365,” “Secure SD-WAN Deployment and Best Practices,” “Zscaler Data Protection,” and more.
If you’re seeking more in-depth training, you can join us in one of two technical training sessions—a Network Professional Track and a Security Professional Track—that include lecture and in-depth labs. When the training is complete, you’ll gain CPE credits towards CISSP and receive a certificate of completion.
Each time I meet our customers, I’m inspired by their experiences and the innovative ways they’re making their organizations smarter, more agile, and more competitive through cloud transformation. That’s why I’m so looking forward to traveling with the Zscaler Academy team and meeting customers and partners all over the world. I hope you’ll be among them!
