Hi,

Greetings from EC-Council!

With the fast growing technological awareness and requirement, cyber preparedness and measures have moved from being a luxury to a necessity. Cybersecurity adoption has become a fundamental step for every organization globally and is even more critical in India since we are deemed as the software capital of the world.

We at EC-Council, have worked with agencies and corporates across the world to make them 'cyber secure' and are working towards replicating this in India too. With the National Cyber Security Policy launched recently, cyber security has found the limelight it required.

We will work aggressively to ensure India has the skilled professionals it requires as a priority and will train the existing professionals to avoid knowledge stagnation.

Look forward to working closely with all of you to achieve our goals!

Thank you,
Jay Bavisi,
President, EC-Council
