Miles continues to display his professionalism even beyond the walls of the CyberStreams firm in Bellevue
(PRWEB) May 27, 2011
In order to ensure service of the highest caliber, the engineering team at CyberStreams is comprised only of “the most professional and experienced engineers”. Entry into this elite group is not a feat to be taken lightly, as it requires a subtle balance of raw talent, technical genius, and an insurmountable hunger for learning. In a recent interview, Miles disclosed that his revered work ethic at CyberStreams IT services firm is due partly to his “commitment to continuous learning and improvement” which resonates throughout his robust credentials.
Miles continues to display his professionalism even beyond the walls of the CyberStreams firm in Bellevue. As an instructor at Everett Community College, Miles captivates the minds of academia with elaborate explanations and technical diagrams. The Bellevue engineer teaches a Computer Information Security course (C S 228) that “examines the field of information security to prepare information systems students for future roles as business decision-makers”. However, just because professor Miles is the one who is dishing out the IT homework, doesn’t mean that he has forgotten what it feels like to be a student. In fact, the IT crusader has also amassed a record number of 14 highly regarded certifications within the last two years, most of which are recognized worldwide.
- EC-Council Certified Disaster Recovery Professional
- MCTS: Windows 7 (70-680)
- MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration (70-640)
- MCP: Windows XP (70-270)
- CWNA (Certified Wireless Network Administrator)
- CWSP (Certified Wireless Security Professional)
- ACSP v10.5 Leopard (Apple Certified Support Professional)
- Network+ (CompTIA)
- Security+ (CompTIA)
- A+ IT Technician (CompTIA)
- Project+ (CompTIA)
- CIW Site Designer (Certified Internet Web Professional)
- CIW Foundations
Many of these certifications pertain to information security, and the most recent certification that comes from the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) has given Miles the title of Certified Disaster Recovery Professional. This means that Miles is certified in the methods of identifying vulnerabilities and taking appropriate countermeasures to prevent and mitigate failure risks for an organization. For CyberStreams, an IT consulting firm, developing a disaster recovery plan is essential for maintaining a vast dedication to business class security, and this 14th certification brands Miles Erickson as the undisputed CyberStreams Master of Disaster… recovery.
When asked about the IT disaster risks facing small to medium sized businesses, Miles outlined the significance of being prepared for an issue rather than simply responding to one when it arises. He comments, “When it comes to security and disaster recovery, preparation is everything.” But a recent survey of 189 data center decision makers conducted by the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants uncovers a lack in IT preparation that the council refers to as “severe”. They found that only 27% of the respondents’ data centers do not run a failover or backup site to recover data in the event of a disaster. Furthermore about 23% said they do not test disaster recovery plans at all while 40% test their plans at least once per year. These statistics affirm a growing need for companies to make sure their disaster recovery plans match best practices in order to safeguard business continuity. According to the ‘Master of Disaster’, “No company can respond effectively to security threats and business continuity events without preparing in advance for the unthinkable”.
Miles Erickson will continue adding to his repertoire of outstanding technical and organizational skills because he is firmly committed to continuous learning and improvement. He understands the accelerating evolutionary changes in IT, and thus he continues his own metamorphosis through experience and education. His 14 certifications merely graze the surface of this CyberStreams IT wizard (who also happens to be an FAA licensed private pilot). Donning a company polo with a CyberStreams logo where most superheroes keep their emblems, Miles Erickson is part engineer, part consultant, part instructor, but full Master of Disaster.
