sam grubb

We are pleased to announce Sam Grubb recently earned the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Practitioner Certification. This certification prepares a security consultant to design, build, test, manage, and improve a cybersecurity program using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. While the focus is on the NIST framework, the certification also includes sections on PCI Compliance, ISO 2700:1, and workforce training. This training further enhances the Edafio Security Teams’ ability to provide robust, organizational-wide security program consulting and risk management.

I am always proud and excited to be able to work for a company that invests in this type of training for our consultants and that Edafio provides us time and resources to be able to stay up to date on the latest trends in cybersecurity concerns.

Through continuing education, accreditation, and certifications, Edafio not only stays current on the leading edge of the latest technology and mitigation strategies, but we can also prepare our clients to identify and avoid risks.
