Europe, May 2020: With the world moving online amid COVID-19, remote workspace is making the cyberspace more vulnerable than before. Criminals are making no exception to crime during this pandemic leaving businesses in Europe on the hunt for skilled professionals who can defend their IT infrastructure from cyber attackers, even post-pandemic. EC-Council’s partnership with CROZ to impart cybersecurity courses online may encourage many to upskill and embrace security as a prospering career.
The European Union and its Member States are collectively working towards combating cyberattacks, especially those that are coronavirus oriented. They expressed solidarity with all countries that are victims of malicious cyber activities and underlined their continuous support to increase global cyber resilience. McKinsey has expressed an impactful version stating that, “cybersecurity must be considered a permanent capital expenditure, and allocations should be prioritized based on a review of the entire portfolio of initiatives underway.” According to McKinsey, business and technology professionals must work together to manage the trade-offs associated with cybersecurity.
Europe’s cybersecurity skill gap has almost doubled over the past year, with 291,000 demand for the security workforce. EC-Council’s alliance with CROZ will help impart online live Masterclass Certified Ethical Hacker course training and fill the skill gap. “There is huge potential in Europe for cybersecurity enthusiasts. Our masterclass training can help them grab the best opportunities of leadership positions,” says Jay Bavisi, CEO and President of EC-Council Group.
The MCEH Pprogram from EC-Council is the most sought-after cybersecurity certification around the globe. This program incorporates instruction and practice to get students ready to take the CEH certification exam as well as the CEH Practical Exam, making them CEH Master. By imparting ethical hacking training via masterclasses in collaboration with CROZ, EC-Council creates a wider scope for cybersecurity professionals to learn and upskill.
