Christopher Berberich, who joined A-lign’s Security Team in 2012, continues to improve A-lign’s service offerings by passing the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH7) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification tests at the end of December.
A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH7 credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The purpose of the CEH Credential is to:
- Establish and govern minimum standards for credentialing professional information security specialists in ethical hacking measures.
- Inform the public that credentialed individuals meet or exceed the minimum standards.
- Reinforce ethical hacking as a unique and self-regulating profession.
Gene Geiger, Director at A-lign™ Security and Compliance Services, noted, “These credentials further the quality of A-lign’s penetration testing service offering and also demonstrate the commitment of our security professionals’ to remain leaders in their field.”
A Cisco Certified Network Associate validates the ability to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN.
