Pete Rife

Holbrook & Manter, CPAs Professional Services Firm with offices in Columbus, Dublin, Marion and Marysville is proud to announce that team member; Pete Rife recently became a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP).

Pete earned his CISSP certification through (ISC) 2, an international non-profit membership association focused on inspiring a safe and secure cyber world. According to their website, (ISC) 2 is universally recognized as the Gold Standard in information security certification and the credentials they offer are essential to both individuals and employers for the seamless safety and protection of information assets and infrastructures.

The CISSP draws from a comprehensive, up-to-date, global common body of knowledge that ensures security leaders have a deep knowledge and understanding of new threats, technologies, regulations, standards and practices. The exam takes six hours to complete and requires the candidate to answer 250 multiple choice and advanced innovative questions.

Pete, who is also a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), shares these thoughts about becoming CISSP certified:

“Our audit, assurance, and consulting clients are increasingly focused on information security and understanding how to best address the risks of a data breach.  The CISSP designation conveys that we have the requisite skills and knowledge to help them with designing and implementing a security program to mitigate these risks.”
