Chris Hurley of IntelliSystems Earns Cyber Security Certification

Chris Hurley of IntelliSystems has completed training and is now certified as an ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM). This certification is the globally accepted standard of achievement for experienced information security managers. CISM is regarded as a distinguished symbol of knowledge, expertise and commitment to the information security profession. Mr. Hurley has almost thirty years of IT and information systems security experience and has been a partner at IntelliSystems since 1995.

In addition to helping design and manage information security programs, an individual holding the CISM certification can help businesses understand the host of complex and challenging security management issues that can significantly impact organization success.

“We pride ourselves in holding our company to the highest standards in our industry. Mr. Hurley’s multiple information security credentials are a benefit to our customers and the security of their networks.” Kevin Wade, chief executive officer and founder of IntelliSystems. “Having a trusted advisor who understands not only the technical aspects of information security but also the importance of emphasizing the needs of the business when designing a security program is extremely important."

CISM is unique from other information security certifications as it approaches IT security from more of a business perspective (emphasizing business understanding and leadership) rather than simply an tech perspective. This expertise plays a critical role in helping organizations develop strong security protocols and protection against threats in an increasingly complex cyber security landscape while maintaining crucial business functionality and profitability.
