Albuquerque, NM; February 10, 2021 – EC-Council, the world’s leading global cybersecurity certification body, today announced the launch of the Ethical Hacking Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame will celebrate some of the most accomplished CEHs around the world. Organizations with cybersecurity teams that have a keen eye for the best talent across the world will be able to benchmark their teams’ capability against the best in the industry.
The CEH credential is recognized as the gold standard of ethical hacking. Established in 2003, the CEH program is the world’s first and longest-running sole ethical hacking certification.
“We believe that positive role models are extremely important in today’s world and that our best and brightest CEH certification holders should be held up for others to emulate. Only those Ethical Hackers that have achieved a score of 90% or above will make the Hall of Fame, as competition is intense,” said Jay Bavisi, CEO of EC-Council Group.
The launch of the CEH Hall of Fame is an effort to recognize the remarkable capabilities of ethical hackers. Any EC-Council member holding a CEH certification with at least 90% score will be invited to apply. However, making it to the Hall of Fame requires more than just passing the CEH exam. A selection committee will carefully review applications based on accomplishments of the applicants with a key focus of their contribution to society, their career transformation story, and their role in the organization where they are employed. The selection committee will thereafter present the finalists to the CEH Advisory Board for their final selection.
“This program is all about highlighting the fact that experience and contribution to the industry are just as important as education excellence,” added Jay.
The 17-year-old Certified Ethical Hacker program has enthralled the cybersecurity community worldwide, gaining the respect and acceptance of various cyber-defense forces, and is recognized by the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, USAF, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), British National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and many other elite defense bodies. About half of Fortune 500 enterprises have CEHs as part of their cybersecurity teams. Now into its 11th Version, the CEH once again finds itself being voted as one of the most in-demand IT certifications in the world for 2021.
EC-Council’s sole purpose is to build and refine the cybersecurity profession globally. We help individuals, organizations, educators, and governments address global workforce problems through the development and curation of world-class cybersecurity education programs and their corresponding certifications and provide cybersecurity services to some of the largest businesses globally.
