Summary: EC-Council simultaneously organized three Masterclass boot camps in three different, major cities of the Asia Pacific region: Hong Kong, Mumbai, and Bangalore. This event is the fifth boot camp in the past two months, running from June 24 to 27.
Cybersecurity professionals from three different countries were trained in two of the most in-demand programs of the cybersecurity industry: EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (Master), a hands-on approach to learning, and the Certified Chief Information Security Officer, a program designed for the elite of the industry. These programs, conducted by experts from the industry, were chosen to create a strong and skilled cybersecurity workforce.
This was the fifth class in the Asian region in the span of two months, where professionals from industries including banking, healthcare, telecom, and manufacturing, attended the training programs, conducted by award-winning Certified EC-Council Instructors Melvin Sandro, Rajneesh Upadhyay, Kuldeep Kumar, and Vinod Babu.
Programs that train cybersecurity professionals are vital to the industry as it faces a huge demand of talent. “The 2019 Cyber Resilient Organization,” a Ponemon Institute study, sponsored by IBM Resilient, states that 75% of those surveyed rated the difficulty of hiring and retaining skilled cybersecurity staff from moderately high to high. The global survey included over 3,600 security and IT professionals from all around the world, including the Asia-Pacific region. 
“Cyber attacks are consistently rising, and one of the major reasons hampering us from countering them is the lack of workforce and appropriate skills. The C|EH training classes focuses on practical learning and developing technical skills, and the C|CISO, which not only contributes to minimizing the talent gap, also bestows professionals with relevant knowledge and leadership skills,” says Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council Group.
