In the endeavor to increase Cyber Wellness on the African continent, EC-Council grants a partnership opportunity to AFRALTI. AFRALTI is an Inter-Governmental Institute established to supplement and spearhead ICT development efforts mainly in English-speaking Africa. It is all set to train its member group on EC-Council’s Certified Secure Computer User (CSCUv2).
In a move of strategic importance to the information-security community of Africa, EC-Council, the US-based cybersecurity company, has appointed the Kenya-based inter-governmental institute AFRALTI as its accredited training partner. AFRALTI is all set to train its member group on the latest version of EC-Council’s Certified Secure Computer User certification (CSCUv2). Traditionally, human resources are dubbed as the weakest link in the information-security chain. AFRALTI will deliver EC-Council’s “Cyber Wellness Program” to the African banking sector, thereby mitigating the risk of a breach even at its weakest link. The “Cyber Wellness Program” was developed exclusively for the world’s banking and financial services sector. A partnership with EC-Council will help AFRALTI to provide both training and consulting services to its clientele, who include ICT regulators, broadcasters, ICT policymakers, and government ministries.
The African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute (AFRALTI) is working toward developing and building skill and capacity in the information and communication technology industry across the African continent. Established in 1992, AFRALTI delivers its services in English-speaking African nations. AFRALTI has been doing a commendable job in the domain of Information & Communications Technology (ICT) to catalyze the socio-economic development of the region.
EC-Council has been the world’s leading information-security certification body since the launch of their flagship program, the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), which created the ethical-hacking industry in 2002. Since the launch of CEH, EC-Council has added industry-leading programs to their portfolio to cover all aspects of information security, including: EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI), Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO), etc. EC-Council Foundation, the non-profit branch of EC-Council, created Global CyberLympics, the world’s first global hacking competition.
