Brand new CISSP Course in Udemy

Brand new CISSP Course in Udemy

New 2016 CISSP Course in Udemy  

Certified, Information, System, Security, Professional

This is an introduction to all the the details necessary to pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam including many study tips. We intend to teach the new 8 domains of security of the (ISC)2 Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) in 8 individual courses rather than one entire course so you only pay for the courses or sections you need to brush up or review on.

Since you only need 70% correct answers to pass we suggest you become proficient in at least 6 of the 8 domains to pass, rather than try to focus on on all the domains.

We recommend to use the Sybex CISSP book, 7th edition, but you can you other book(s) as well.

An energy miracle is coming, and it’s going to change the world

According to Bill Gates: An energy miracle is coming, and it’s going to change the world!

“If we could bring the cost of solar electric and wind down by another factor of three, and then have some miraculous storage solution, so that not only over the 24-hour day but over long periods of time where the wind doesn’t blow, you have reliable energy. In the $3 trillion a year energy market, for someone who really is cheaper, the rewards will be quite fantastic.

At some point, that risk-taking private capital can take over, and have patents and trade secrets and things that let them lead the way, which happened with the steam engine and some other things, although with energy, the time of adoption is a lot longer than it is with, say, IT products or even medical advances, like drugs and vaccines.

Other paths would include making nuclear fission cheap enough and safe enough that people broadly embrace it, so that could be scaled up. Or, if you really could take the CO2, when you burn hydrocarbons — coal, for example — if you could really capture the carbon and sequester it — they call it CCS — if the extra capital cost, energy cost, and storage costs over time didn’t make it super expensive, then that’s another path that you could go down.

I could name about a dozen paths, and you’d like to have a whole bunch of research on all those paths, and then, eventually, at least four to five companies with really significant financing try and get to big scale, going down and really trying to prove it out. It’s the same way that when the car got going, people thought it would be an electric car, people thought it would be a steam car.

think most of the infectious diseases like malaria — our foundation is very involved — once we’re finishing polio eradication, then starting up this malaria eradication, and getting that done as fast as we can.

So on the demand side [for energy], there have been a variety of policies that globally have been way over $50 billion a year of tax credits, raising the price of electricity through things like renewable portfolio standards, so the total amount of money that’s gone into sending a price signal to push up demand versus what would happen without it has been gigantic. On the supply side, for innovation, you’d say, go look at those R&D [research and development] budgets, and they haven’t moved in the last 20 years.

Apple Reports Record-Breaking App Store Performance

Apple Reports Record-Breaking App Store Performance

Apple had a very lucrative holiday season, breaking all previous App Store records during the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s.

It seems that Apple fans were busy shopping for apps and in-app content in the holiday period, and they definitely didn’t shy away from purchases.

In a press release issued on Wednesday, Jan. 6, Apple announced that customers spent more than $1.1 billion on apps and in-apps purchases in the App Store, and that was only during the holidays. For the whole year, the total amount customers spent in the App Store goes all the way up to a staggering $20 billion.

Jan. 1 marked the biggest day in Apple’s entire App Store history, with customers spending more than $144 million to kick off the New Year in full force. The previous single-day record was not more than a week old, as it was set on Christmas day.

“The App Store had a holiday season for the record books. We are excited that our customers downloaded and enjoyed so many incredible apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV, spending over $20 billion on the App Store last year alone,” says Philip Schiller, Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing, in the press release.

“We’re grateful to all the developers who have created the most innovative and exciting apps in the world for our customers. We can’t wait for what’s to come in 2016.”

Developers have raked in more than $40 billion since 2008 worldwide, Apple further notes, highlighting that more than one third of that total amount was from the last year alone.

The impressive success of the App Store stretches even further. Apple takes pride in creating and supporting 1.9 million jobs in the United States, and says that the App Store’s success played a major role in this achievement. More than 1.4 million of those jobs are related to software engineers, app creators and entrepreneurs developing apps for iOS, or some other non-IT jobs the app economy supports.

Outside of the U.S., Apple offered 1.2 million jobs in Europe, as well as 1.4 million jobs in China.

When it comes to the most popular content in the App Store, the top categories were Gaming, Entertainment and Social Networking. Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Trivia Crack, Heads Up!, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat and WeChat were among the top choices. Games, along with subscription apps, also dominated top-grossing titles in 2015.

At the same time, both the Apple Watch and the Apple TV hit the scene in 2015, bringing new app experiences and changing how consumers use apps and content. The most popular apps for the Apple watch include: Nike+ Running and Lifesum in the Fitness category, Citymapper and iTranslate in the Travel category and for the Apple TV, HBO NOW, Beat Sports and Rayman Adventures proved to be big hits.

Despite the record-breaking holiday App Store success, however, some are concerned that Apple is on a downward trend in terms of smartphone sales. According to a new report, Apple cut component orders for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus by 30 percent due to sluggish demand. The report sent Apple shares tumbling down.

Facebook Remains The Top App Of 2015!

Facebook this year continued to hold the number one position as the top app installed on U.S. smartphones based on the average number of unique users, according to a new report out this week from Nielsen, but its mobile messaging application clocked in as the fastest-growing app of 2015. Having foreseen the shift from more public social networking to private communications, Facebook forced users to install Messenger in spring 2014 by ripping out chat from its main app. In the months since, the app has soared to the top of the App Store’s charts. Over 2015, Messenger grew more than any other app, the new report says – with a 31 percent increase in users from 2014.

That’s slower growth than Messenger saw in 2014, when it rose 242 percent over the year prior thanks to Facebook’s huge push. The question now will be whether or not Facebook can do the same for its next most-promising creation, the private photo-sharing app Moments which is now replacing photo-syncing on Facebook’s social network.

Also in the running for fastest-growing app was Apple Music, which saw a 26 percent year-over-year climb. However, that’s a bit of different situation from Messenger, given that Apple’s streaming music service only launched this June.

In terms of the top apps by users, Facebook led the way with more than 126 million average unique users each month, up 8 percent over last year where it was also the top app. And YouTube was hot on its heels with 97 million average unique users each month, up 5 percent over last year.
