IIE is the first school in France to have its training validated, endorsed and recognized by ANSSI’s (The National Security of Information Systems in France) standards. The partnership between IIE and EC-Council is aligned to IIE’s positioning and objective as being one of France’s leading training schools to provide it’s students with comprehensive academic qualifications and industrial certifications encompassing the IT Security market. Liliane Denis-Cussaguet, IIE’s Director says, “One of the core values that sets IIE apart from other institutions is our drive to provide students with a differentiating niche that goes beyond textbooks and classrooms. We focus on skills and industry experience which in turn will mold the careers of our students.”
With 90% of IIE’s students gaining employment within 2 months of completing their studies (over 70% being recruited whilst still in school!), the Institut Informatique et Entreprise of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Nord de France is a recognized provider of quality training and education in France. By partnering EC-Council and ANSSI, IIE intends to become a major player in providing professional training in IT Security in France,” commented Claire Kemp, EC-Council representative in France.
“With the inclusion of the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) certification into our IT Security program suite of offerings, we hope that the students will not only be equipped with the necessary knowledge, but will also gain a competitieve edge over their peers in the job market through the certification,” added Christian Deliessche, one of the first CEH certified professors at IIE.
The first C|EH class is scheduled to begin at the start of their new academic year in September 2010. Mr Sean Lim, the Vice Pesident for EC-Council, shares the significance of the partnership, “Having been selected as one of the training content providers for IIE is testament of the quality of EC-Council standards. It is our honor and privilege to have IIE become one of EC-Council’s training partners. We are certain that this partnership will blossom, and that through this partnership, IIE will be a stronger player in the information security training market.
