Techzone Is Now An Exclusive C|CISO Training Partner for EC-Council in Dubai
Albuquerque, NM. 15th April 2018.
Techzone Networking Services LLC, recently became an exclusive partner in Dubai to conduct trainings for the world famous Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO) training program. EC-Council’s Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO) is a first-of-its-kind, ANSI 17024-accredited training and certification program, aimed at producing top-level information security executives. Focusing on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view, the program was developed by CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.
As the UAE and the Gulf move more and more towards mobile devices and data, the security of that data and information is becoming a pressing issue. GulfTalent, a leading jobsite and recruitment agency for professionals in the Middle East and Gulf, analysed data from over 85,000 IT professionals contacted by employers and recruitment agencies over a five-year period until 2017. The data found that the demand for Information Security Professionals had increased significantly, from 4 percent in 2012 to 9 percent in 2017.
“Dubai reflects global prosperity… with professionals from around the world serving here in varying designations. Securing the rights to exclusively hold C|CISO training programs in Dubai is a great benefit to the cybersecurity community in Dubai since we experience a growing demand of professionals who have the skills, abilities and knowledge to manage the cybersecurity architecture and defences of organisations”, said Eyad Mari, GM, Techzone Networking Services.
A recent report from Cybersecurity Ventures stated that, ‘Cybercrime will cost the world more than $6 trillion annually by 2021 and the demand for cybersecurity experts is expected to rise to 6 million globally by 2019.’ With a projected shortfall of 1.5 million, cybersecurity personnel have become one of the most sought-after resources in which organizations are looking to invest now.
With Dubai and UAE, making tremendous progress in adopting the world’s latest smart technologies, an underlying responsibility to protect these investments from malicious intent is implied. Businesses today are liable to face a big quantum of financial losses and reputational damages with every major cybersecurity attack. The exclusive open C|CISO training provided by Techzone is the perfect capacity building measure for senior cybersecurity professionals. The candidates would be trained in an ANSI-accredited, globally recognised, premier program, with the session being conducted by a Certified EC-Council Instructor to ensure, that the quality of training delivered will be upheld across all the 140+ countries where EC-Council courses are provided.
This training will include many case studies and examples, and participants will be challenged to develop a business continuity plan for an organization in a particular situation, use metrics to communicate cyber risk to different audiences, and describe how to align a security program with the goals of the organization.
The CCISO certification is an industry-leading program that recognizes the real-world experience necessary to succeed at the highest executive levels of information security.
EC-Council’s CCISO program has certified leading information security professionals around the world. A core group of high-level information security executives, the CCISO Advisory Board, formed the foundation of the program and outlined the content to be covered by the exam, the body of knowledge, and the training. Each segment of the program was developed with the aspiring CISO in mind and looks to transfer the knowledge of seasoned professionals to the next generation in the areas that are most critical in the development and maintenance of a successful information security program.
The CCISO program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. Instead of focussing solely on technical knowledge, the CCISO training looks at the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view.
EC-Council has been the world’s leading information security certification body since the launch of their flagship program, Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), which created the ethical hacking industry in 2002. Since the launch of C|EH, EC-Council has added industry-leading programs to their portfolio to cover all aspects of information security including EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (C|HFI), Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO), among others. EC-Council Foundation, the non-profit branch of EC-Council, created Global CyberLympics, the world’s first global hacking competition. EC-Council Foundation also hosts a suite of conferences across the US and around the world including Hacker Halted, Global CISO Forum, TakeDownCon, and CISO Summit.
