Tampa, FL (October 13th, 2021) Cynthia Constantino, a well-respected editor of cybersecurity courses and programs, joins EC-Council to lead content and editorial for the EC-Council Group. Constantino’s responsibilities will include implementation and oversight of maturity models for governance, development, and quality frameworks that relate to content of the group.
Constantino’s 15 years as an editor and leader in the digital skills, cybersecurity, education, and literary industries uniquely position her for a role that requires visionary leadership. She previously lead editorial and development of cybersecurity course content for a premier Israeli digital skills and cybersecurity training institute.
As the gatekeeper of quality for digital communications, she will not only drive accuracy and content strategy but also ensure high standards of excellence on every level.
Of the new role, Constantino says, “I am looking forward to ensuring the integrity and quality of content throughout the organization and leading EC-Council in a new era of thought leadership. I share with EC-Council a strong commitment to ethics and inclusivity, and a passion for digital skills education.” Constantino also notes the rapidly growing relevance of sectors such as cybersecurity in today’s landscape, citing the digital skills gap that has impacted nearly all industries worldwide. “A significant part of my role,” says Constantino, “will be to drive the creation of content to ensure it is a reflection of the industry, that it is ethical, and that everyone is represented.”
Constantino notes the rapid global changes impacting communications in the digital arena. “The fast pace of communities and businesses around the globe often means pivotal changes that influence how we work, live, and communicate. Content producers, and those who ensure that content is free of error and bias, are becoming ever more crucial. Just as cybersecurity specialists safeguard the integrity of systems and the data they defend and protect, communications professionals are needed now more than ever to ensure accuracy, inclusivity, and originality. I look forward to leading EC-Council in this capacity.”
Constantino attended the University of Oxford in the U.K. and earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Tampa in FL, US. She is the author of numerous books and publications and was the managing editor of a major lifestyle magazine formerly published by Condé Nast.
