PRESS INFORMATION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The UK’s leading edtech firm, e-Careers Limited, has formed an exclusive partnership with EC Council to deliver Cyber Security training to professionals nationwide.

Having trained over 200,000 information security professionals globally –including representatives from the US Army, FBI, Microsoft and the United Nations – EC-Council is the world leader in cyber security education, offering certifications in ethical hacking, security analysis and network defence.

In an exclusive partnership, e-Careers is now the only authorised partner across the UK and Ireland to deliver the complete range of online EC Council Cyber Security and Ethical Hacking accreditations, including its world-famous Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) programmes.

Jazz Gandhum, CEO of e-Careers, confirmed “Cyber Security is an advancing threat to businesses and organisations globally, where the recent ‘WannaCry’ and ‘Petya’ cyber-attacks penetrated businesses, banks, airports, government departments and health Services across multiple locations worldwide, not forgetting the UK’s very own National Health Service.”

“This increasing threat has resulted in a growing demand for cyber security professionals, with recent reports revealing the number of roles advertised in the UK is at the third highest worldwide. Considering this advancing skills gap, e-Careers is delighted to bring all EC-Council online courses to the UK, and will be working hard to help increase cyber security skillsets, knowledge and understanding.”

Taken over by Jazz Gandhum in 2011, e-Careers is one of the UK’s leading edtech firms, providing access to over 600 courses across a range of industry sectors through its unique, innovative e-learning platform.

Having educated more than 400,000 individuals over the past six years alone, the innovative firm has formed partnerships with over 75 key organisations, including awarding bodies, colleges and private establishments to make education affordable and accessible to the masses.

Jay Bavisi, CEO of EC Council, added: “We are delighted to have formed this new partnership with e-Careers and the opportunity this now presents for professionals across the UK. Everyday cyber security threats grow with professional hackers advancing knowledge and digital inroads at an exponential and alarming rate.”

“The only way to combat cyber security threats is through knowledge and education, and thanks to our new partnership with e-Careers we are confident more and more professionals will be able to quell this risk, making the digital world a safer, stronger place.”

All EC Council courses offered through e-Careers’ innovative e-learning platform are accessible online, making Cyber Security training both convenient and cost-effective.
