EC-Council conducted a 4-day classroom intensive cybersecurity Masterclass in the capital city of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh on July 21, 2019, to address the growing issue of cybercrimes in the region.
A recently released Microsoft report makes it clear that Saudi Arabia has become an enticing target for cybercriminals because of the insecure consumer habits and inadequate security measures, highlighting three types of threats that the kingdom faces: botnets, ransomware, and social engineered attacks.
“EC-Council has launched its Masterclass training program to ensure that cybersecurity professionals are equipped with the right tools to fend off these attacks. We are dedicated to the mitigation and remediation of the cyber plague that is menacing the world today. The latest Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Masterclass training program was launched in Riyadh with exactly that goal in mind,” said Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council Group.
The session focused on immersing the participants into the hacker mindset and identifying weaknesses in a company’s IT systems. Once susceptible areas are discovered, information security professionals are trained on how to deal with the threat while shoring up defenses.
To achieve the CEH certification, the participants are tested in a 6-hour vigorous exam held in a simulated virtual environment where the skills they have learned are put to the test.
This course was attended by a group of participants from diverse sectors ranging from communication to finance. The intensive classroom training was conducted by industry practitioner and award-winning EC-Council Master trainer through interactive, hands-on training.
