O’Fallon, IL - October 9, 2018 - Alpine Security (“Alpine”), a CompTIA Authorized Partner and leading cybersecurity training, penetration testing, and audit firm, announces they now offer the complete CompTIA Cybersecurity Track, starting with the Network+ certification. Alpine encourages students to be intentional and have a plan for their cybersecurity career development that includes a progression in knowledge, skills, and abilities. The CompTIA cybersecurity track provides a clear path for those starting a career in cybersecurity and for seasoned cybersecurity professionals looking to advance their career by proving their knowledge, skills, and abilities through certifications.
“Cybercrime is on the rise. We need expanded cybersecurity awareness and more professionals to effectively combat cybercrime. We encourage people to start a career in cybersecurity and those in the field to have a clear and intentional career path,” says Christian Espinosa, Alpine Security CEO.
Many Alpine students with little or no experience start with the Security+ certification. Alpine encourages the Network+ certification and even the A+ certification prior to starting the Security+ training and certification process. The Security+ is an essential core cybersecurity certification. Obtaining the Security+ certification without experience is feasible, but requires intense focus and dedication. Those that do best on Security+ and the CompTIA cybersecurity track understand their “why” and want to make a difference fighting cybercrime.
Alpine requires all their staff members, including administrative staff, to take their Security+ course. “We believe increased awareness and applied cybersecurity knowledge reduces cybersecurity risk,” says Espinosa.
Alpine has a unique business model – they offer both cybersecurity certification training and cybersecurity services (penetration testing, auditing, assessments, forensics, and more). All of Alpine's trainers work on cybersecurity projects when they are not teaching. The relevant experience Alpine trainers bring to the classroom greatly enhances the student experience.
"GREAT TRAINING! The instructor was very knowledgeable and made sure you understood the concepts not just the words. His long term work in the area he was teaching helped with real life examples to reinforce the materials. Alpine Security went above and beyond to make the training relevant and to help in any way they could, I would not hesitate to recommend them and am already signed up for my next class in a few weeks" says Rich, a former Alpine Security+ Student.
Alpine offers an Exam Pass Guarantee for all their certification courses. Their Exam Pass Guarantee means you can retake a course for free if you are not ready for the exam or you can retake it for free after the exam. Alpine is committed to helping students launch and expand their cybersecurity careers.
