Information Security Landscape

“Unfortunately, while organizations are developing new security mechanisms, cybercriminals are cultivating new techniques to evade them.”
– Steve Durbin,
Managing Director the Information Security Forum (ISF)

According to the Identity support service company iDCare, 193,480 adults in New Zealand have experienced some sort of identity theft with an average of $13,600 involved in each case. Net Safe has reported an increasing number of calls regarding identity thefts and fraud involving over $8 million. The percentage of people reporting cyber crimes has gone from 2 percent to 4 percent in the last 5 years.

Even as technology and applications are upgraded for better network and Internet security, cyber criminals keep pace with security advancements and find new ways of exploiting individuals and organizations. EC-Council is dedicated to addressing the lack of qualified information security professionals on the job market by offering certification programs that address the security needs of modern companies.
