For all people interacting with technology on the job, July 28 is a day to thank the System Administrators keeping everything secure and functional.
While often behind the scenes, a System Administrator, (or Sys Admin), is the person in charge of the Information Technology (IT) Team.
The Sys Admin and IT team make sure that all connections and systems are secure, that both Internet and Intranets are running smoothly, and that all systems are protected against cyberattacks-as well as keep the important printer networks online.
Employees may not always see the System Administrator, but what the Sys Admin does makes it possible for everyone else to effectively do their jobs.
Sometimes people get frustrated with technology. It's frustrating when systems are slow or fail to work as expected. People often demand that systems not only do whatever task is requested, but also do it faster and more efficiently.
It's important to recognize the constant effort this job requires. The cyber world is constantly changing and it's because of them that online security stays strong and up-to-date. These Sys Admins must constantly learn about how to protect against new threats as well as learn, adapt and integrate new technology and tools to keep operations safe and running.
Consider giving the hard-working System Administrator and tech team members a genuine thank you on July 28. Look in the control room-or whichever desk they're under-to let them know their time and hard work is appreciated.
