EC-Council Academy opens in Australia, partners college on security training


Leading, global information security training provider, the EC Council Academy, has set up operations in Australia, coinciding with establishment of a partnership with the Petersham TAFE, Sydney Institute, which will offer EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigation (CHFI) programs.

Petersham TAFE is the first university in Australia to take on EC-Council Academy's partnership, and Managing Director, Wilson Wong, says there is a high global demand for information security experts in today's workplace, and it is unlikely to slow down in the foreseeable future.

“As people become more reliant on technologies, organisations struggle to keep their company and customers safe from cyber criminals.”

Bala Subra, Head Teacher, Information Technology, at Petersham TAFE, said the EC-Council Academy courses fit well with the college’s Network Security Advanced Diploma program and the TAFE Degree program.

"The students love the Ethical Hacker (CEH) modules since it focuses on technologies & strategies used by hackers. There is a popular demand for CEH and CHFI training due to the high importance of computer security now and in the future.

While the concept of information and cyber security is not new, many fail to understand is the complex systems, technologies and concepts behind it. These training programs are designed by leading information security experts.”

Subra said the EC-Council courses, to help budding information security professional stay competitive among their peers, were vendor neutral and structured to provide students with core knowledge and skills to identify network vulnerabilities and weaknesses, enabling them to put in place countermeasures for optimum information security.

Subra cited a Frost & Sullivan report which estimated there are 2.28 million information security professionals worldwide, and that the number is expected to grow by 13.2 percent by 2015.
