Is there a Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK) and FedRAMP course/tutorial online anyone could recommend? I'm not having much luck on Youtube or Udemy. TIA!

Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense

How will the rate of hiring change at agencies under a Biden administration? Few jobs in past 3+ years and fewer for non military, while consulting is growing and growing.

Would be nice if the Government legalized marijuana (including for Feds) during this lockdown. Allegedly it is quite effective at making boring things interesting.
