EC-Council trains Italy’s first batch of Computer Hacking Forensic Investigators in Rome

ROME, February 1, 2010 – Italy’s very first Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) training was successfully conducted by Elea Spa, one of EC-Council’s Accredited Training Centre in Rome. The class was made up by 12 members of the forensic team of a major Italian company, and upon completion, they have successfully joined the global community of EC-Council certified information security members that currently stands at over 25,000 across 60 countries.

The CHFI program lets participants acquire the necessary skills to identify an intruder’s footprints and to properly gather the necessary evidence to prosecute.

“We would like to thank EC-Council for the excellent in-depth CHFI program and Elea Spa for providing a conducive training environment. A special mention of Mattia Epifani, Certified EC-Council Instructor, for his professionalism and expertise in teaching the program,” said Giuseppe Mazzaraco, Fraud Management Chief of Corporate Investigation & Fraud Prevenzion of the Italian Firm.

Sean Lim, Vice President of EC-Council commented, “The CHFI program being embraced by one of the largest and respected Italian firm is a testament of the quality of our programs.
