Education technology 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, the FBI, Microsoft and the United Nations – EC Council offers certifications in ethical hacking, security analysis and network defence.
Now, in an exclusive partnership, e-Careers becomes 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 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. 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 skill sets, 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 innovative e-learning platform.
Having educated more than 400,000 individuals over the past six years alone, the business has formed partnerships with over 75 key organisations, including awarding bodies, colleges and private establishments with a view towards making education affordable and accessible to the masses.
Sanjay Bavisi, CEO and president of the EC Council, added: “We’re delighted to have formed this new partnership with e-Careers and look forward to the opportunity this now presents for professionals right across the UK. Every day, cyber security threats grow with professional hackers advancing their knowledge and making digital inroads at an exponential and alarming rate. The only way in which to combat cyber security threats is through knowledge and education. Thanks to our new partnership with e-Careers, we’re confident that more and more professionals will be able to quell this risk, making the digital world a safer and stronger environment.”
