Summary: EC-Council trains IT employees of News Technology Services in incident handling, certifying them as EC-Council Certified Incident Handlers.
Bengaluru, 24 Nov: News Technology Services (NTS) a part of News Corp, NASDAQ listed American mass media and publishing company joined hands with EC-Council to up-skill their cyber security team to handle and respond to cyber incidents. News Technology Services works directly with News Corp’s global brands to offer a range of technology services, including web development support, application support, infrastructure management and cyber operations support.
EC-Council, to make cybersecurity education accessible at an organizational level is engaging enterprises to offer classroom training on premise. In line with this initiative, EC-Council recently imparted in-person training in incident handling through the EC-Council Certified Incident Handler (E|CIH) program at News Technology Services, Bengaluru.
A study by IBM showed that 77% of respondents do not have a cybersecurity incident response plan applied consistently across the enterprise. Incident handlers are essential to contain a cyber incident effectively and help organizations reduce the consequences of a breach. Organizations are under constant attack and are therefore turning towards incident handling experts to help them with a more systematic, planned, and legitimate approach to business continuity in the face of a cyber incident.
“EC-Council, in imparting classroom training exclusively for our employees, has equipped our team with the latest skills and knowledge required to handle and respond to security incidents. The training has been a massive success and E|CIH is quite a comprehensive program which will help us deal with any unforeseen incidents with a planned approach.” says, Satyavati Divadari, Director – Cybersecurity, News Technology Services Pvt Ltd. She further added, “We preferred EC-Council mainly because it is the largest cybersecurity certification body and E|CIH program stands on par with other incident handling programs in the market. EC-Council will definitely serve the higher purpose of gaining clientele confidence and thereby, providing uninterrupted service.”
“EC-Council is taking great strides to ensure that cybersecurity training is accessible to everyone around the world. We look forward to nurturing this enterprise relationship with News Technology Services and introducing more programs to their staff in the near future,” says Sean Lim, COO at EC-Council.
