Utrecht, Netherlands November 2, 2011 – In collaboration with EC-Council’s Authorized Training Partner in the Netherlands, EC-Council stamped its mark at the recently concluded Infosecurity Netherlands Expo.

EC-Council collaborated with its training partner in the Netherlands, Tshukudu Technology College BV (TSTC BV), to co-exhibit at one of the Netherlands’ largest information security tradeshows, held in Utrecht from November 2 -3 , 2011. This partnership demonstrated EC-Council’s goal of creating greater awareness towards information security training and education.

Speakers of EC-Council’s booth were organized by Gerard Smak, EC-Council’s exclusive distributor in the Netherlands, and Emile Kok, Director of TSTC. The speakers informed attendees about EC-Council’s certification classes’ use of labs and tools to educate information security professionals on securing their systems. Attendees were impressed by the presentations that explained how the courses used some of the most current attack vectors employed by the underground hacker community.

Attendees were presented with giveaways from EC-Council. The giveaways included a lucky draw session that awarded the winner electronic courseware, featuring the world-renowned Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program.

“The participation at Infosecurity Netherlands has allowed our partners to reap handsome rewards,” said Sean Lim, Vice-President of EC-Council. He further adds, “The awareness generated from this show will no doubt translate to higher take up rate of our certification training programs offered by our partners. We will continue to identify and spearhead such joint initiatives with our partners.”

Emile Kok, Director of Tshukudu Technology College BV (TSTC BV) said, “This has been a very fulfilling exercise, and EC-Council has once again demonstrated its leadership by championing such demand generation initiatives which will definitely help in the efforts to evangelize EC-Council security training offerings.”
