The EC-Council | Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Licensure Board is a member based network of volunteers that are recognized by EC-Council and the society as key leaders in the field of information security. They are carefully selected from the industry and are committed to the information security community.

The LPT certification Licensure Board shall hereby be responsible to advice EC-Council in the development and the maintenance of  EC-Council LPT licensing matters.
