Two members of GraVoc’s information security team, President/CEO Dave Gravel and his son Nate Gravel, have been grandfathered into the Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) certification by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). The CRISC certification is the newest of ISACA’s four certifications.

This certification is for “IT professionals who have hands-on experience with risk identification, assessment, and evaluation; risk response; risk monitoring, [information systems] control design and implementation; and [information systems] control monitoring and maintenance.” As the certification requires eight years of experience in information security and risk management, the CRISC designation is perhaps the most selective of ISACA’s widely-accepted certifications.

Meanwhile, limited parking, rain showers, and unseasonably cool temperatures weren’t enough to deter dozens of members of the North Shore business community from attending GraVoc’s barbecue Thursday night. This event was part of the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Business After Hours” networking event series. The event was characterized by an extensive spread of burgers, hot dogs, beverages, and desserts. GraVoc is extremely appreciative of everyone who attended, and hopes everyone was satisfied by the atmosphere and the food.

GraVoc Associates, Inc, based in Peabody, MA, is a technology consulting firm focused on helping businesses in the practices of information security, professional services, information systems, and media production.
