The ECSA cybersecurity certification is a penetration testing certification that involves both a practical, hands-on component and a multiple choice exam. ECSA candidates must first execute a penetration test on a live cyber range, carrying out objectives against multiple targets. A penetration test report must be submitted for grade after the hands-on portion. Once an ECSA candidate passes the hands-on portion, they progress to the multiple choice exam.

Christian Espinosa presented at the 2016 AFCEA Mid-America Cyberspace Symposium on the Top 20 Critical Security Controls. Christian spoke about applying a risk-based approach to cybersecurity.
