December 1, 2010 – Albuquerque, NM – EC-Council today announced the appointment of Arab Security Consultants (ASC) as its non-exclusive distributor for Egypt. ASC, with its offices based in Cairo, is a leading information security company specialized in network security products, solutions, research and development and trainings.
By the appointment, ASC will serve as the authorized distributor of official EC-Council courseware, as well as be a training provider of EC-Council’s certification programs in Egypt.
A report released by Symantec highlighted that in 2009, for the EMEA region, Egypt was the top-ranked country for potential infections by viruses and ranked third for worms. Being a soft target for many hackers, Egypt will witness a surge in the demand for trained and certified information security professionals in the coming years.
“We are proud and excited by the appointment extremely honored to represent EC-Council in Egypt. This partnership will further enhance our position as a key player in the information security space in Egypt, and we hope that by bringing into Egypt a suite of world class training and certification programs will enhance the skills and knowledge of security professionals to adequately defend the nation’s cyber frontier,” said Dr Bahaa Hasan, Chairman of ASC.
Mr. Sean Lim, Vice President for EC-Council remarked, “The appointment of ASC will ensure a stronger presence for EC-Council in Egypt. With a team of highly driven professionals that are equally talented, we are confident that ASC is positioned for success.”
