You’ve heard the saying, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” I think that wisdom applies nicely to the overall value that system administrators bring to their employers. Since July 29 is System Administrator Appreciation Day, today is the perfect day to reflect on these workers and their roles.
I’m confident that any and all security-related incidents would be impossible to prevent or work through without the guidance of a system administrator who knows his network like the back of his hand. Security may not be the specific focus of system administrators, but I can assure you it comprises a significant portion — arguably the majority — of their workloads on any given day.
