United Kingdom, June 2020: The U.K. has been in the news the past few years for rampantly growing cyberattacks. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is putting constant efforts in making the U.K. cyberspace the safest place to work. On the other hand, the cybersecurity skill gap has been hit harder in U.K. EC-Council has been striving to fill the skill gap across the world, and the collaboration with Verhoef Training will serve the purpose to a large extent. In association with Verhoef, EC-Council will impart MCEHP (Masterclass Certified Ethical Hacker Program) online to benefit infosec professionals across the U.K.
Recent statistics issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) show that almost half U.K. businesses suffered a cybersecurity breach or attack in the past year. The number of attacks rose to 68% among medium-sized firms and 75% among large business houses. Another research from Beaming (business ISP specialist) revealed that the volume of cyberattacks in the country has increased by almost one-third in the first quarter of 2020. Cyber attackers have been a constant threat to the U.K.’s cyberspace. The MCEH program from EC-Council will equip professionals with advanced ethical hacking skills to combat and defend businesses from black-hat hackers.
“It is a good opportunity for cyber enthusiasts to upskill themselves with ethical hacking skills and methodologies. Moreover, the training deliverance is online and live, allowing the participants to attend the sessions from their comfort,” says Jay Bavisi, President and CEO of EC-Council Group.
The MCEH Program from EC-Council is among the most sought-after cybersecurity certifications 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 Verhoef, EC-Council now creates a wider scope for cybersecurity professionals to learn and upskill.
