Congratulations to Joshua Allen for passing his Security+ exam this morning. Josh joined CTSI seven months ago and has been pushing the limits ever since, achieving certifications in A+, Networking +, and Certified Cyber Security Architect in short order. He works with our Managed Business and Healthcare Services division. He is an amazing young man and CTSI is proud to have him on our team.
Cyber security is this decade’s biggest challenge for businesses and the people they serve. According to CTSI President, Tammy McCrary, “taking care of our community partners’ IT and cyber security needs is critical to keeping everyone focused on business rather than crisis.” That is why CTSI partnered with ecfirst to provide world class cyber security training to her staff of IT Professionals in Albany. Ali Pabrai, Chief Executive Officer of ecfirst, was in Albany to teach a certification course: Certified Cyber Security Architect (CCSA).
This issue is so important that when CTSI contracted Mr. Pabrai to provide the highest quality cyber security training to her employees, she made it available to the community too. Participants came from businesses across our community including the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB). Dale Brown, Senior Systems Analyst for Chickasaw Nation Industries at MCLB stated, “World class training in cyber security is one of the most urgent and compelling areas emerging in the today’s increasingly challenging cyberspace arena…critical to say any company or organization desiring to reduce strategic risks across their IT backed infrastructures make this investment a priority.”
Pabrai, Chief Executive Officer of ecfirst, an Inc. 500 business, is a highly sought-after security and regulatory compliance expert. He provides training, compliance solutions, cyber security consulting, and managed services around the world. He is the author of the executive brief Cyber Security Strategy: The 4 Laws of Information Security and is a proud member of the U.S. FBI InfraGard.
