Information Security Landscape

“We can do things better. We need to stop doing business as usual and start focusing on end-to-end quality. Security needs to be built in from the start — not slapped on after the fact.”
— Gene Spafford,
Computer Security Expert and Professor at Purdue University

The new era of technology has given birth to a new kind of criminal: cyber criminals. Cyber crime is often hard to detect and has the potential to bring down entire financial and information systems of a country if allowed to operate unchecked. When looking at the statistics of cyber crime in Sweden, the third largest country in Europe with the eighth highest per capita income in the world and a GDP of USD 457 billion, the rate of incidents of cyber crime has fluctuated between 11,000 – 15,000 crimes per 100,000 of population over the past two decades.

In order to have a strong, effective, and vulnerability-free security system, cyber professionals need to not only conduct regular intrusion and vulnerability assessments but also ensure that applications and systems are constantly improved in accordance to the findings of those assessments. EC-Council, the world’s largest certification body for information security skills, understands the need for more skilled professionals. EC-Council has created hands-on, intensive, skills-based cyber security courses to enable organizations to train their existing workforce as well as address the dearth of skilled information security professionals via our outreach programs.

EC-Council is the creator of the most sought-after Information security certifications in the world. The Certified Ethical Hacker, CEH, trains students in the fundamentals of ethical hacking, including pen testing, vulnerability assessment, attack vectors, foot printing, sniffing, cloud computing, firewalls, honeypots, botnets, DDoS attack tools and countermeasures, cryptography ciphers, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), cryptography attacks, and cryptanalysis toolsets. In short, CEH students study and practice how to maintain and improve the network, system, and application security of any organization.

Even organizations with teams of highly qualified experts need to understand how to monitor and respond to changing risk environments for their information assets. A major factor in determining the agility of an organization is determined by how quickly and effectively the organization responds to cyber crime to mitigate the threat. EC-Council offers the CEH training program in addition to many other programs that address effective information security from a variety of perspectives and specialties.

The CEH course is one of the most globally recognized cyber security courses. The program helps any security professional excel in their role as part of an information security team. These courses are taught through various modes of study that includes both online and classroom teaching.

EC-Council presents courses that teach individuals about secure programming, encryption, and ethical hacking, among many other information security topics at various cyber security training centers and online modules.
