This is a highly prestigious certification granted by an independent, third-party organization known as the International Information System Security Certification Consortium. The CISSP is often referred to as “the world’s premier cybersecurity certification,” and is only granted after an extensive examination and verification of the participant’s experience in the field of technology. Individuals who hold the CISSP certification are proven experts in the field of cybersecurity, having the knowledge needed to design, implement, and support best-in-class systems.  

Edward Gries, the employee who obtained the CISSP certification, is one of SouthTech’s leading engineers. He has been with SouthTech for 15 years, serving clients and mentoring junior employees.
