EC-Council Announces the Launch of Online Masterclass Training in Europe

Summary: EC-Council has announced the commencement of its live online masterclass training in Ethical Hacking. The first training was delivered on May 18, 2020 with participants from banking, healthcare, manufacturing, and government sector.

Europe, May 2020: EC-Council’s motive of bringing cybersecurity mastery via global experts and local delivery, is not compromised even during the adverse situations raised amid COVID-19. The cybersecurity masterclass training is now delivered in Europe, via live online classes to benefit professionals from different sectors. The first online live training was delivered by EC-Council’s master trainer, George Dobrea, on May 18, 2020. Where cybercrime is on the rise, EC-Council’s Online Masterclass Ethical Hacking Program (MCEHP) equips professionals to defend their IT infrastructure.

Masterclass Training

There is no contradictory thought that the trend of online learning has outpaced traditional learning, all thanks to COVID-19! The institutes and universities have shifted their presence online to ensure uninterrupted education for their students, while continuing to follow social distancing practices. Technavio has predicted the e-learning market in Europe to post a CAGR of close to 15% by 2023.

Jay Bavisi, CEO and President of EC-Council Group, envisions Masterclass training as a ready bucket of EC-Council’s cybersecurity courses. “The Masterclass from EC-Council is a hub for all in-demand cybersecurity certification courses. The online conduct of the EC-Council’s Masterclass Ethical Hacking Program will help bridge the existing skill gap in Europe,” says Jay. “We now pursue a greater objective of conducting such online masterclass cybersecurity skill training across the world”

Interestingly, the live online session in Europe witnessed participation from the sectors which are most vulnerable to cyberattacks. The certified course will enable them to establish security standards in their respective sectors to protect themselves from facing such cyberattacks.
