London, Apr 30, 2010 – In collaboration with some of EC-Council’s Authorized Training Partners in Europe, EC-Council stamped its mark at the recently concluded Infosecurity Europe Expo.
EC-Council worked with four of its training partners in Europe namely – Firebrand Training, Sysdream of France, TSTC of Netherlands, and Netacademia of Hungary, to jointly exhibit at the largest information security tradeshow in Europe, held in London from April 27-29. This is in line with EC-Council’s objective of creating greater awareness towards information security training and education.
Live hacking demonstrations were arranged at the EC-Council booth to demonstrate how EC-Council certification classes used labs and tools to educate information security professionals to secure their systems. Sean Hanna, an EC-Council Certified Instructor, impressed attendees at the show as he demonstrated some of the most current attack vectors employed by the underground community. Crowds gathered around the booth during the demonstration sessions, and due to overwhelming demand, Sean had to do encore sessions daily.
In addition to giveaways of a specially designed CEH branded T-Shirt, EC-Council generously gave away its electronic courseware, comprising of the world-renowned Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program and the Network Security Administrator (ENSA) program, during the daily lucky draws.
“The participation at Infosecurity Europe has allowed our partners to reap handsome rewards,” said Sean Lim, Vice-President of EC-Council. He further adds, “The awareness generated from this show will no doubt translate to higher take up rate of our certification training programs offered by our partners. We will continue to identify and spearhead such joint initiatives with our partners.”
Robert Chapman, Director of Firebrand Training said, “This has been a very fulfilling exercise, and EC-Council has once again demonstrated its leadership by championing such demand generation initiatives which will definitely help in the efforts to evangelize EC-Council security training offerings.”
Olivier Franchi, Director of Sysdream adds, “We are very proud to select and partner with EC-Council at Europe’s largest infosecurity event – Infosecurity Europe 2010. Such collaborations are crucial in putting our step forward in the market of security training.”
