Meet Featured Author: Christian Espinosa
Christian Espinosa is a speaker, coach, and trainer in the Secure methodology, helping to make the smartest people in the room the best leaders in the field. One of the ways he accomplishes this is through his book The Smartest Person in the Room: The Root Cause and New Solution for Cybersecurity, a book that hit the Amazon best seller list in 6 categories in the first week of launch.
As the CEO of a cybersecurity training and services company, Christian Espinosa understands that if the client “didn’t get it” - the company was not clearly stating
their value to the client. In his case, for his company Alpine Security, the client didn't
understand the results of a penetration test (ethical hacking) Alpine had just performed for them, meaning they didn't understand their cybersecurity risk, or how Christian’s company could help them become more secure.
This put Christian on the path to research and understand how to help himself and his staff develop better people and life skills. Christian shares with us “Ultimately, at the end of the day, the client needs to “get it” and they need to feel understood and appreciated. I knew if I didn’t facilitate this change, my company would be no different from all the other technical companies. I didn’t start my company to be like everyone else, the status quo. I want to add value to clients and improve their cybersecurity. This meant we needed to do something differently.”
