Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – EC-Council, the world’s leading information security certification body, today announced the appointment of Maninder Pal Singh as Executive Director of its consulting division, also known as EC-Council Global Services (EGS).
EGS is composed of advisory and technical teams with years of corporate, field, and consulting experience. EGS teams are dedicated to helping organizations protect, detect, and react against applicable cyber threats in an increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment.
Jay Bavisi, CEO of EC-Council Group and Chairman of the Board EC-Council University, explained, “It is widely accepted that we face a dearth of cybersecurity professionals and an estimated shortfall of 1.5 million professionals is expected by 2019. EC-Council Global Services strives to rope in suitable member firms to deliver high quality cybersecurity services across the globe. Maninder brings both experience and leadership in cybersecurity consulting and experience in leading security teams as a CISO in his earlier role and this is undeniably a huge asset for EGS.”
Singh’s career spans over 14 years in IT and cybersecurity, which includes 5 years as a CISO. Prior to joining EC-Council, Singh was part of the cybersecurity practice at a big 4 consulting firm where he was responsible for managing client relations and driving large teams while ensuring the quality of services being delivered.
“Cyber Risks are evolving by the day and are huge threats for most businesses across the globe. With cybersecurity being discussed by the board and increasing pressure from regulators, CISOs need to do a lot but with limited resources.” said Singh. “We at EGS intend to provide services and solutions to help manage Cyber Risks in a cost-effective manner, while leveraging the knowledge and expertise of the EC-Council teams that impart trainings at the Pentagon and the Department of Defense. I am very excited about the prospects and challenges we have in front of us.”
To date, EC-Council has trained over 220,000 cybersecurity professionals in 145 countries with award-winning courses that include flagship Certified Ethical Hacker, as well as Certified Security Analyst, Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator, and Certified Chief Information Security Officer.
