Part Four of the series, "University Usage of ESI Technology Gives Rise to Alternative Career Paths for Lawyers," suggests that for iCONECT, certifying future lawyers on XERA at the university level may help solve a talent gap issue as well as increase licensing from potential buyers of the platform.

Part Six of the series, "Time, Not Buy-In, Becomes Biggest Barrier to Broader Cybersecurity Awareness," discusses Inspired eLearning's move into the legal market with the aim not to certify, but constantly educate.

Part Ten of the series, "Privacy is Becoming an Alternative Career Path for Thousands," reveals how and why the IAPP is certifying more privacy professionals than ever before, thanks to the GDPR and a legal community hungry for reinvention.

Part Eleven of the series, "Changing Cyber Law by Creating a Common Vernacular," looks at the (ISC)2 lexicon intended to help everyone speak the same language, especially congressmen and women who are responsible for changing the laws of the land as it relates to cyber and national security.
