Stockholm, July 29, 2011 – In an effort to share with the Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) community on the enormity of cyber security threats and how to counter the impending dangers, EC-Council supported the recent MCT Summit 2011 that was held from June 28th , 2011 to July 1st, 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden.
More than 100 of the crème de la crème from the MCT community gathered for four days of conference and workshops in the capital of Scandinavia, Stockholm.
EC-Council sponsored all participating MCTs with its newly released Certified Ethical Hacker and Countermeasures (C|EH) version 7 courseware and exam vouchers. The announcement was made by the Summit’s Chair, Mr. Daniel Sörlöv during the event’s welcome dinner.
According to Daniel, “The EC-Council program provides vendor neutral training in a very important area, security, to the market. By having EC-Council sponsoring our event, it allows our MCT community to have access to the world-leading ethical hacking program, the CEHv7, which will certainly fortify their security knowledge and skills. We greatly appreciate EC-Council’s support.”
Sean Lim, Vice President of EC-Council, added “MCT Summit Stockholm has given EC-Council a very warm welcome and we look forward to continue bringing the latest IT Security education here and to the rest of MCT Summit series. These MCTs with their newfound knowledge of information security will be a boon to their trainees globally as they will be spreading the security mandate and know-how while delivering Microsoft’s pervasive technologies globally”.
