ENCINO, CA – January 18, 2016 - FPA Technology Services, Inc. (FPA), the leading IT Service Provider in the greater Los Angeles area, is proud to announce that Alex Kazmin, Technical Account and Security Assessment Manager, has earned the achievement as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®). Already a proven expert in the fields of cybersecurity and software administration, Alex adds this certification to his extensive list of achievements. The vendor-neutral CISSP® certification is the ideal credential for those with proven deep technical and managerial competence, skills, experience, and credibility to design, engineer, implement, and manage their overall information security program to protect organizations from growing sophisticated attacks.
Alex Kazmin heads FPA's team of network security professionals that is responsible for ensuring our clients are protected from cybersecurity threats with the help of FPA's comprehensive network auditing and assessment program. Unlike most network security assessments, FPA's is uniquely tailored to the needs of each individual client and/or firm. Their assessment strategies focus on locating the network infrastructure points that might be considered the weakest, securing those points, and then rebuilding areas as necessary to ensure that any and all potential weaknesses are hardened as much as possible.
"We feel that we are the firm 'redefining what it means to be an IT Service Provider'," said FPA' s Founder & CEO Craig Pollack, "and part of that is taking ownership for the safety and security of our clients' networks and their information. Having Alex attain the CISSP certification is big in the IT industry and a big plus for FPA," Pollack said. "Not only is the CISSP an objective measure of excellence, it is also a global recognized standard of achievement. Alex worked hard to attain it and we are fortunate to have him on board as one of the next generation of information security leaders. Not just in Los Angeles, but in the country."
"There are currently less than 101,000 CISSP certified professionals in the world today," says Kazmin. "I am honored to join those that came before me and appreciate the opportunity to use my skills to serve our clients".
